Running VMware Workstation on Ubuntu 18, installed vSphere 6.7 as a virtual machine, trying to install vCenter 6.7 on top of vSphere VM.
The installation process stuck at 60% and gave an error saying vpxd service cannot be started. No detailed error messages.
By SSH to the machine I found most of the VMware services are masked. If to unmask vpxd, the service cannot be found anymore.
vCenter is using DHCP, no DNS.
Can someone help with starting the vpxd service, so I can continue installing vCenter?
1. Please check if the vMon is masked, if yes please remove it from masked list or enable it.
2. Please upload the logs for the vpxd service /var/log/vmware/vpxd/
