I got this message above from web browser, while I try to connect to vCenter:
And I have this image from shell that shows which services have started (attached)
There are like many solutions online, but I do not know where to start...I also found some articles that looks like with my problem, like certificate, but i dont know if is the same.
I appreciate your time trying to help me
cm.log says it is down from 2nd July 2022. I suppose it might be better to re-install VC.
Which vCenter Certificate are you using? highly possible that the certificate has expired.
a few weeks ago I have had the same issue. After the Certificate renewal issue has been solved.
Please remember to check the certificate template in CA - it should be slightly adjusted for vSphere7.
I've tried to renovate as much as user root and user: administrator, but it's showing wrong password.
I've reseted the password both.
How do I see which certificate vcenter uses?
there are a lot of articles on the internet on how to check and configure it.
you can also check Certs with WinSCP or via SSH
on your screen you have the wrong username; not root - only should be [email@example.com]
The system tells you to provide a username: so you should provide ...firstname.lastname@example.org
to ssh you log in with [root] but all replacement actions and confirmation is going via administrator
One more thing - you can reset all certificates with action number 8 - but before do a snapshot;
once it will be reset - you will be able to login to vCenter
after that you will be able to check and decide what to do next
Thank you for supporting me!
But @maksym007 I've tryed even with the password from email@example.com, but it show me "incorrect password" before, I reseted this password trough vdcadmintool.
Do you know why happen this?
I made the reboot and I changed the password again, but it simply appears incorrect password.
I've tryed copy and paste and to type too, both show "incorrect password".
This is the error (above) that happens, so therefore I unable to regenerate the certificates.
I was checking here, canoot be certificate, right? On Browser I've clicked in certificate and:
The pic above is in portuguese, but expirate date show that will expire in August 2027.
Could be other thing impacting this, right?
I am still wondering, why are you not able to login with your admin credentials to vCenter.
When you will download vCenter ISO and will attach it to your mgmt windows VM - check Recover/Repair option.
Maybe there will be option regarding certs.
I will check it in my lab too.
Without admin password you will not be able to proceed.
