VCenter

A general system error occurred: Too many outstanding operations

Call "ServiceInstance.RetrieveContent" for object "ServiceInstance" on Server "vcenterxx01.test.com" failed.


I can't login to my vcenter that I usually have no problem to log in.

Obvious question but have you tried restarting your virtual center?

williamwlkAuthor Commented:
Don't dare to try to yet! Coz it is in a production environment. Safe to restart your virtual center?

If yes, restart "VMWare Virtual Center Server"? or "VMWare Virtual Center Management Webservices"?
or both

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

I would restart the vcenter management services...this will onloy effect DRS and HA, and will be down for a few seconds only.

VMWare Virtual Center Management Webservices ???

If yes, i will see what I can. but not right away as it is a production box, managed by my colleague.

I will talk to him and respond when done.

You can try restarting those both services but it's probably just as well to reboot the whole server. Unless you have anything else installed on there you are bothered about (which would not be sensible) the vCenter server just provides a central point to manage all of your hosts. The hosts (and the VMs on them) will continue to run happily without a vCenter server. You will however, lose connectivity in the vSphere client for the time it's down, obviously.

Yes, it's perfectly safe to restart the vCenter environment in a Production environment.

otherwise start checking vCenter logs and possible start in standalone mode.

As i said in the very first post, try restarting you VCenter. I can Assure you that I wouldnt suguest it if it had an impact on your running environment and risked taking machines down :)

please note that HA is normally NOT affected by restarting vCenter.

For configuration of HA, you need vCenter  - but in an HA situation the HA procedures do not need a running vCenter

Dear All,

The VMware VirtualCenter Server was restarted but got the message :

"The VMware VirtualCenter Server service hung on starting. "

According VMWare this is most likely due to DB not ready when the service starts.

We checked the DB via ODBC and the password expired. We fixed it that way.

The culprit is DB Issue.

I will contribute the points to you evenly.

Thanks

W
