    vCenter access through PowerCli, Not Working..

    TryllZ Enthusiast

      Hi,

       

      I'm unable to access vCenter server via PowerCLI, I use this command

       

      Connect-VIServer -Server 192.168.169.8 -User Administrator@vsphere.local -password Passw0rd$

       

      and receive this following error:

       

      Connect-VIServer Permission to perform this operation was denied. Required privilege 'System.View' on managed object with id 'Folder-group-d1'

       

      I first received the invalid certificate error which I got resolved with the command

       

      Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -InvalidCertificateAction Ignore -Confirm:$false

       

      And then I changed the command to access vCenter to

       

      Connect-VIServer -Server 192.168.169.8

       

      And I receive the windows popup for username and password, I tried accessing to which I receive the below error

       

      connect-viserver : There was no endpoint listening at https://vcsa.dc.local/lookupservice/sdk that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action

       

      For this error I found I need to achange advanced vCenter settings but I was unable to find advanced settingsin the vSphere UI or the vCSA administration web UI.

       

      I am on vCSA 6.7.0.21000-11726888 and PowerCLI VMware PowerCLI 11.0.0 build 10380590

       

      Anything else I have not tried yet.

       

      Thank You
