Install the vCenter and access the vSphere Web client on it. However, it fails

Failed to connect to VMware Lookup Service
https://10.0.23.100:7444/lookupservice/sdk - SSL certificate verification failed. In fact, during the setup, I see the error. Any idea ?

BTW,  I have also changed the IP address (as it was assigned with DHCP by default). Will that also be the problem ?

this could be a certificate issue, and needs regeneration, see this VMware KB

The message got. However, after inputing the password, any message pop up "The vSphere Web Client cannot connect to the vCenter Single Sign On server."

Any idea ?

Hmm..  I ran into this same error when I changed the Hostname on my vCenter Appliance - it took some reconfiguring of SSO to resolve this issue - I noticed that in your first screen shot it appears you do not have a hostname configured, could this be the issue?

Also as Hanccocka mentioned - I had to regen the cert.

Oh - another thing I forgot to mention - check your DNS for a reverse pointer for the old IP to hostname - get rid of that and replace with the correct PTR record.

I believe it may relate to SSO as I never touch it in my vCenter... How do I configure it ?

The issue is that you didn't configure the server with FQDN (probably wasn't joined t domain).  Because of this is created a certificate with the IP that it had at the time which you've changed and thus you're getting this issue.  Make sure system is in domain and provide FQDN for certificate. If it will stay in workgroup assign static IP and re-install
