Not able to connect to vCenter 503 error

Issue connecting to vCenter

vSphere client could not connect to 192.168.x.x (IP for vCenter)

An unknown connection error occurred (The server could not interpret the clients request) The remote server returned an error 503 available

Getting this when trying to access vCenter via Web client and Thick Client, vSphere version is 6.0

Whats easiest and best way to get this working? I couldn't restart VMware Virtual Centre Server in services (2012R2 OS) got an 1068 error, rebooted the vCenter virtual machine, still getting the error

Small environment 2 ESXi hosts which were rebooted last night, no shared storage, there has been a NAS box setup recently

Version is Essentials 6.0

Thanks Andrew, in the meantime (and i have seen your previous posts saying to use appliance) is there anything that can be done to get vCenter working in Windows?

I can help you if you wish to troubleshoot. If Windows needs some more logs info..

Get me programdata/vmwarw/vcenterserver/logs/vmeare-vpx/ vpxd.log output for me pls or attach that file
Last question Andrew does the Windows vCenter have to be working in order to deploy VCSA, you said it would take 10 mins, any good deployment guide available? The customer does not have VMware support will that affect access to the appliance?
