After patching the server firmware, the vcenter virtual appliance can't be accesed with the message as attached.

The vcenter is a vm guest and hence, I can't access it through 0.0.0.0.

Also, I can find the file /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_config_net. Any idea ?

you need to reconfigure networking for vcenter

login to the console and type the following

type in  
/opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_config_net

Open in new window


Make sure to fill out the following sections:

2) Default Gateway
3) Hostname
4) DNS
6) IP Address Allocation for eth0

After this has been done type 1 to exit the configuration too

Configure your vCenter Appliance Network Configuration:

        Logon to the vCenter Appliance VM Console using the default credentials (root/vmware)

        Run the following command: /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_config_net
        Choose option 6) Ip Address Allocation for eth0
     
        Unless you are using IPv6 then hit n to skip configuring it

        Hit y to configure IPv4 when prompted

        Enter the desired IP for your vCenter Appliance

        Choose Option 2 to setup your gateway address

        Choose option 3 to setup your VC HostName

        Choose Option 4 to setup your vCenter Appliance DNS

        Choose option 1 to close the network configuration

        Type exit and hit enter to log out from the vCenter Appliance Console

One more thing why its not detecting eth0 adapter?

Check the VM - vcenter appliance and verify how many nics are there in VM properties.

It doesn't accept 'N'. Although I have converted my IPv4 into IPv6, it still can bind successfully.

Some finding, the original configuration is in eth0 but right now it is asking for eth1. However, there is not such file..

Is it possible to ask vCenter to use eth0 instead of eth1 ? Tks
