    vCenter access through PowerCli, Not Working..

    TryllZ Enthusiast



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


      Connect-VIServer -Server -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


      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 and PowerCLI VMware PowerCLI 11.0.0 build 10380590


      Anything else I have not tried yet.


      Thank You
