What error message you get when trying log in on vSphere Web Client ? Are you using local SSO user or Active Directory user ?

I can't even get to the web page.   The webpage at the ipaddress loads... but when I click to go to the client page I get this...

I think it's AD... (though I don't get to login, so perhaps my question title was bad... lol)  . I followed Andrews vcenter setup article.

Just to confirm, which version of vCenter you're running ?

just quickly restart the server.
reboot was the first thing I tried :-)

In any case - it seems to have resolved itself... I got some strange messages then it said it was initializing itself... then finally became available.

after a restart it can take up to 15-30 minutes to start services
