VMware: Error 2901. Could not connect to vCenter Single Sign On during install

August 26th, 2014 1 comment

Today I installed a new vCenter 5.5 server in a environment without a domain and DNS server. During the deployment of vCenter Single Sign On I received this error message:

Error 29101 Could not connect to vCenter Single Sign On. Make sure that the Lookup Service URL points correctly to the vCenter Single Sign On instance you installed. If vCenter Sign On is installed with an IP address, make sure the IP address is specified in the URL.

Select: “Use FQDN instead of IP address to configure vCenter Single Sign-On”

March 22nd, 2012 6 comments

Today I want to install Windows 8 in my test lab, after creating a new virtual machine and power-on the VM I received warning error message:

Failed to find a host for powering on the virtual machine. The following faults explain why the registered host is not compatible

The operation is not allowed in the current connection state of the host.

Weird, both ESXi 5.0 hosts are powered on, my vCenter VM is running on the same machine which I want to power on the new virtual machine.. also strange is.. there’s no CPU (0 MHz) and no Memory usage (0,00 MB) activity at this host, check the screenshot below

Double check..:

Jup.. there are two running servers at esx01.vmpros.lan

 

Solution:

After disconnecting the ESXi host from vCenter and reconnect the host I was able to power on virtual machines, also my CPU/Memory activity is back
