VCenter doesn't start

Hi,

I wonder if someone had the same issues with VCenter 4.1: each time I reboot the server, the service is not started, I have to start in manually.
After a while the service does not start anymore and I have to do a reinstall. In VCenter logs nothing is found what indicates a problem.
So what I have to do is a total uninstall/reinstall of VCenter.
Note: SQL Xpress is local. VCenter runs as virtual machine (no other option), VCenter runs on Windows 2008 R2 64BIT.

I had the exact same problem where i had to start the vcenter service manually increasing the spec of the vcenter vm sorted it out for me.
Mine is on Windows 2008 R2 64BIT 2 CPU cores 10GB of Ram (Although I think the RAM is overkill)

Hope this helps

Don't have much room for adding more ram (server has only 8GB) or cpu, this esx has very limited resources. I should really now what to configure.

Think my solution was a bit of luck, found this in the vmware KBs though

Looks like this is the problem,  me adding extra resources must have enable the dependancies to start in time.
