Error occurred while starting service 'vpxd-svcs' -vSphere 6.7 Installer

"The appliance cannot be used or prepared because a failure was encountered. An error occurred while starting service 'vpxd-svcs'.

I have created a domain controller, and given VCSA a DNS record within said DC. After stage 1, I am not able to proceed with stage 2 because of this issue. I am also unable to access any log output because it's all in Chinese-looking gibberish. I have also put in a reverse lookup zone. I have talked with the networkers and they have said the IPs for VCSA, the management laptop, and our hosts were all correct. Is there anything I am missing?

I am having the same issue.  I am installing vCenter 6.7U3 on an isolated system with no Internet access.  I added dummy values for DNS and de4fault gateway, as neither exist.

Fails at stage 2.

Log bundle attached.
