Vcenter installation failure, some components not installed??

Jump to solution

So my old Vcenter Server crashed and died for various reasons, mainly it was old hardware from long ago. So I decided I would build the new VCenter on a newer server running Server 2012. I dont use the simple install as I have always had problems with it so I installed each component one at a time, SSO, Inventory Services, Vcenter Server then VSphere client.

Everything goes fine till I hit VCenter server and it fails telling me it was installed but some of the components have not been installed. I have read through the log but I seem to be missing something. As I am a one man shop here I keep getting pulled away and was wondering if anyone here can please offer some insight?

I have attached the log.

Thanks in advance for any help.
