Hi,

If this is the problem! You can not change the domain and DNS, because the VC installation and configuration of the DB points to FQDN of origin.

For the resolution:

Remove from old domain, reboot.  Add to new domain, reboot.

In the ODBC use SQL authentication, because Windows will not work if the 2 domains are not trusted.

Regards

Daniel

oK THAT I KNow, is this Vcenter still belong to a old domain and old DNS that does not exist anymore. It can be the problem, is it ?.

We will migrate to the new domain and new DNS and we will test the connection via V Sphere.

What did you think about this ?

After migrated if we cannot connect we will try to reset the pass with this tecnote  right ?

Change the password from command line:

Note: You must change the password through the command line, as it is encrypted in the registry.

  1. Click Start, then type cmd in the search box.
  2. When cmd.exe appears, right-click it and choose Run as administrator. The command prompt window opens.
  3. Navigate to the directory in which vCenter Server is installed:

    • In VirtualCenter 2.0.x, it is installed by default in:

      C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter 2.0\

    • In VirtualCenter 2.5.x, vCenter Server 4.x and 5.x, it is installed by default in:

      C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\VirtualCenter Server\

    • In vCenter Server 6.0, it is installed by default in:

      C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\vCenter Server\vpxd\

  4. Run the command:

    vpxd.exe -p

  5. When prompted, enter the new password and press Enter.
  6. Retype the password and press Enter again to complete the password change.
