'm facing the very common error when navigating to the vSphere Web client -
503 Service Unavailable (Failed to connect to endpoint: [N7Vmacore4Http20NamedPipeServiceSpecE:0x7f0cb4715570] _serverNamespace = / _isRedirect = false _pipeName =/var/run/vmware/vpxd-webserver-pipe)
I've searched a lot and tried a variety of solutions but none of them are working.
The main issue is the Web Client service is stopped, and upon starting this manually, it stops again in a bit. I've restarted the appliance several times but it has not helped.
Running on VCSA 6.0 with external PSC.
Please check the status of your vcenter services using cmd:
service-control --status --all
Try stopping all the vcenter services once and start again:
service-control --stop --all
service-control --start --all
Also, please check the ports are opened and DNS resolves your vcenter FQDN or update host entries.
If you are using proxy, add your vcenter IP/FQDN in the exception list.
I also encountred this isse sometimes, this is what I normaly did:
To resolve this issue:
However if that dosn't work, I would suggest you to do an update of the vCenter VCSA, That resolved my issues as the solution from vmware was not working with me.
Best regards, and luck.
I had an issue similar to this because I was using an old bookmark to connect to my vcenter. The bookmark had a whole lot of goobly gook after the URL, probably because I dragged and dropped it from the address bar and never edited it. The solution was simple. Remove all the goobly gook. So;
If you add the letter 'ui' after the slash, you won't be asked which client you want to use every time. (https://myvcenter.contoso.com/ui)
Hope this helps someone out.
