Hi,
I have configured a SSO server with vsphere, added a data-center but when attempting to add a host I keep getting the vpxa start timeout.
I found a VMware BK with the resolution is to change the buffer from 128 to 256 in the vpxa.conf file, this did not resolve the issue, any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Atorex

Yes, you cannot add 5.5 to vCenter 5.1.

You must have vCenter 5.5.

Your version of vCenter must always be higher than the host version.

Upgrade to vCenter 5.5.
