We have a vcenter appliance version

with hostname AND FQDN set to only "vcenter".

we'd like to change it to vcenter.company.com and did it from the VAMI, as per KB.

However the process fail with the error

Fail to reset computer account

and we have to revert to the snapshot.

 

Has anyone had the same trouble ?

thanks
