vcenter applicance error failed to connect to server

Have an issue with Vcenter on the server console, after I rebooted, I get a login instead of the Vcenter screen.  I login and it says Failed to connect to service. It then list the few helps commands and the ability to go to shell. This has no effect on the Watchlist app on my phone, or logging into vcenter with a browser.

thoughts or something to try?

thanks

I waited 8-10 minutes, simple environment, So delete the VM or just re-install on top of what's there?  a pain for sure but if it's less painful then trying to chase issues I guess I can live with it.

thanks

doesn't look like the disks are full. vCenter is working through the web portal, able to view all the VM's edit and etc. not enough exposure to this vCenter prduct to figure out what the issue is. could it had an auto update that failed?  I can also use vSphere client, but it alerts me to the fact that vCenter is being used. what issues if I just let it run the way it is?

Andrew Hancock, what am I looking for in the log, something with the word 'duplicate key' ? is there a patch for it, or should I just reinstall like you were saying?

VMware, a software company founded in 1998, was one of the first commercially successful companies to offer x86 virtualization. The storage company EMC purchased VMware in 1994. Dell Technologies acquired EMC in 2016. VMware’s parent company is now Dell Technologies. VMware has many software products that run on desktops, Microsoft Windows, Linux, and macOS, which allows the virtualizing of the x86 architecture. Its enterprise software hypervisor for servers, VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi), is a bare-metal hypervisor that runs directly on the server hardware and does not require an additional underlying operating system.
