Installing vSphere 5.5 tips and tricks pt 2

If you are trying to upload vcops or vCNS and the import seems to complete but then reports “canceled by user” and reverses the install – try downloading the ova again.  Why checksum isn’t part of this process I have no idea.

If you want SSO multi-site you can only use “Simple Install” for the first vCenter instance.  SSO install will not give you the “New or existing” option during Simple Install.

If at first it doesn’t install; try, try again.

If at first the vCenter server service doesn’t start – restart the “VMware Identity Management Service” a.k.a SSO and try try again.

If you see

[01948 error '[SSO][SsoFactory_CreateFacade]'] Unable to create SSO facade: Invalid response code: 404 Not Found.

when trying to start the vCenter Server Service  – restart the “VMware Identity Management Service” a.k.a SSO and try try again.

Orchestrator is way cool if you have not tried it, but it is a pain to install and configure.

If you don’t see performance information populated in the Web Client – give it a few minutes.

All for now!
