Credentials for the vCenter MHM Service

Jump to solution

Trying to install vCenter MHM so I can control multiple ESX hosts with one client. Problem is, when I'm installing vCenter MHM it's asking for credentials with rights to start a service. no matter what I give it, it says the specified user does not have sufficient rights to start a service. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

your user account need to have LogonAsService permission set

you will have to modify the Group policy or the local policy of the computer.

computer configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment -> Log on as a service

just add the user account to this setting.
