Vcenter Issue

I cannot start the vcenter 4.0 service. I checked the logs and I receive this:


[2011-03-16 10:16:51.220 07700 error 'App'] [VpxdMain] Failed to initialize: File Format Exception: Node has both value and children

[2011-03-16 10:16:51.220 07700 info 'App'] Forcing shutdown of VMware VirtualCenter now

any ideas ?

that's a pretty old build of VC 4.0...  Are all of your hosts that old as well or have they been upgraded at all?  i.e. what build numbers are they at?

It won't start even if I try to start the SQL Service first manually then start vmware.  I also should mention it will work on a reinstall until I reboot the server.

They're all that old.

Danny McDanielClinical Systems AnalystCommented:
Do you have any VM's with snapshots?

Or, marked invalid or orphaned?  You may have to log into each host directly with vsphere client to look for this.

ShubyAuthor Commented:
No everything is showing fine within the hosts.

Danny McDanielClinical Systems AnalystCommented:
try increasing the logging level http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1001584 to see if that gives any more clues as to what's causing this.

no change in log.

Danny McDanielClinical Systems AnalystCommented:
The only thing that I've seen cause similar issues are something "wrong" with one of the VM's (more than 32 snapshots or something wrong with the snapshot chain or some other oddity) or some corruption/invalid data in the database.

When you have re-installed VC, did you wipe the database and have to re-add your hosts or just refresh the files/settings of VC?

I wiped the box clean when I reinstalled VC

Danny McDanielClinical Systems AnalystCommented:
Ok, that would support the theory that there is something up with one of your hosts or VM's.  Have you verified that you don't have a VM with a lot of snapshots?  from the command line you can run 'find /vmfs/volumes -name *.vmdk | grep 0000' and that will return all disk names/locations that are snapshots.
