Hi VMware Community,
I am having issue accessing my vCenter via browser.
I am able to ping the IP address and I was able to access it few days ago.
May I know what I need to check for me further investigate causing the issue.
Kindly let me whether vCenter IP Address is reachable.
hi john ,
which version of Vcenter do you used ?
you must used FQDN instead of ip for reach vcenter Web page .
and are you access to port 443 ??
Yes I am able to ping the IP address. But I am not able to access the GUI
I am using version 7 and yes port 443 is enabled.
I was able to access it few days ago without any issues.
ping is not enough ,,
you must ping FQDN name and Telnet IP 443 ,
if you can access in past it could be Certificate issue and maybe certificate expired.
pls check certificate
Now I am trying to access the https://IPAddress:5480
And I am getting this issue:
Check the disk usage with df -h via SSH and try to start the services manually.
Start all services: service-control --start --all
You can check the logs of the services that won't start to have an indication. Location : /storage/log/VMware/"service"/"service.log"
check if the certificates are still valid:
vCenter Appliance: Run the following command in a console window or SSH session to the vCenter VM:
for store in $(/usr/lib/vmware-vmafd/bin/vecs-cli store list | grep -v TRUSTED_ROOT_CRLS); do echo "[*] Store :" $store; /usr/lib/vmware-vmafd/bin/vecs-cli entry list --store $store --text | grep -ie "Alias" -ie "Not After";done;

I am trying to open the Vcenter VM but it is showing DCUI aborted by exception.
I am trying to access it using putty but it is saying connection refured.
"DCUI aborted by exception" . that sounds the the Photos OS vCSA has root partition full.
Reboot vCSA VM and check once. "/" cleanup might be needed.
Hi @Ajay1988 ,
Thank you for that. Would it be ok to force restart the VM? As I can't connect via ssh and can't even open the browser.
Yes..Force restart the vCSA VM from ESXi.
If you are able to access VAMI:5480 so check which service has been started and which one is not.
you will be able to check all partitions.
Hi @Ajay1988 ,
Thanks for your help. After I forced restart the VM, it works as normal after that. It just took a long for it to run all the services and able to access on a browser.
