vCenter keeps shutting down
Posted on 2013-06-03
I'm using VMware vCenter Appliance version 5.0.0-455964.
About a week and a half ago I noticed all the VM Hosts times were off just a bit. I would say it ranged from 5 minutes to 10 minutes. I fixed each hosts time manually.
Ever since I did this, my vCenter appliance keeps shutting down. I have to log in using the web based console. I simply click Start vCenter and its fine again. But will shut down within 24 hours again.
Also, since I changed these times the VMware Client will not stay connected to vCenter for longer than an hour it seems like.
What could be going on? I've done a reboot under the system tab on vCenter thinking that may help but it did not. Any suggestions and or help would be greatly appreciated.
