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.
