Failed VMware vCenter install

Posted on 2014-07-29

I have just done my first installation of Vcenter Server 5.5 and have hit a snag in that I cannot login to the Vcenter server either by the administrator@vsphere.local or by domain credentials using the vsphere client or the web client. I am sure I am spelling the username and password correctly.

Can I correct this without completely un-installing and re-installing the components? And If I do re-install is it purely a case of add/remove programs, reboot and re-run the installer?

The quickest way to resolve this issue, is to Uninstall and Re-install, making a note of the password you have used.

And If I do re-install is it purely a case of add/remove programs, reboot and re-run the installer?

and the SQL database!

Thanks Andrew

Rather embarrassingly the login problem was cured by rebooting the vcenter server!!

Will award points to you anyway for your time
