The VMWre VirtualCenter Server Service suddenly is failing to start after reboot.  I tried re-entering login credentials (I've had to do this sometimes in the past) but it's not helping.

In Windows Eventlogs:

Log Name:      System
Source:        Service Control Manager

Event ID:      7024

Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      vcenterserver
Description:
The VMware vSphere Profile-Driven Storage Service service terminated with the following service-specific error:
Incorrect function.

Have you tried restarting the server?

Check that the database has not exceeded 4GB or 10GB based on SQL version?

I did restart the server, that's when I encountered the problem.  I have since restarted again.

Database size is 92.19 MB   (.09219 GB)

Were are the relevant vmware log files?

Thanks.

Normally when this happens to me...first thing I check is the windows services to make sure they are up....vcenter service, web client service, etc, etc
