VCenter -I did something stupid and need help

Hi all,

I was going through the stages of replacing my SSL certificates on VCenter server, and got into a muddle and ended up running this command:

vpxd -p (in directory VMware\Infrastructure\VirtualCenter Server. Windows 2008 R2 with VCenter 5)

On the VCenter server! Needless to say, I changed the password of the VCenter database and now services:

VMware VirtualCenter Server and VirtualCenter Management Webservices

Will no longer start!

Can anyone kindly tell me how I can amend the VCenter database password so that I can get these services running again? No VCenter until I get it up and running!

Forever in all your debt....

Best,

Hesan

Hi,

Is it vCenter 5.1 or 5.0. Would like to see what is going on vpxd.log when service fails. Can you put latest vpxd.log file content here.

Also have you change password or same password you have update with new certificate.

Regards

Mohammed

I have changed the password, (stupidly) and I think this is the reason why the services are not starting back up again.

Help!

Many thanks,

Not able to access vCenter server database password after replacing  SSL certificate.
I would like to know what version of VC  5.0 or 5.1 . Also would like to know if you have  changed SSL certificate for VC, from log it says that you have replaced the certificate.
Is vCenter server is in virtual machine or physical machine.
Apply this action plan if you have vCenter server  in virtual machine.
Take snapshot of vCenter server  machine.
take back-up of vCenter server database
and update vCenter server password again using vpxd -p.

Mohammed

Hi Mohammed,

Thanks again for a response.

Its VCenter 5.1 in a VM Windows 2008 R2.

I did replace the SSL certificate.

If I do change the database password by doing that command, do I not have to change the password elsewhere in order for VCenter to continue working again and the services to start up?

Many thanks,

Hesan

Hi,

Do not change password, use the same password which you had  for vcenter server databse user before SSL certfficate was replaced.

Here is KB http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=203500...

Which does not says to change password, just to update password with new SSL certificate keys.

Steps number 17.

Regards

Mohammed

Hi,

I do not recollect what I used as a password prior for the VCenter database! When would I have been asked for this? At what stage? During installation of VCenter or through another setup process?

This is my problem, I have changed the password by following those instructions, specifically in Step 17 and now I am unsure of WHICH password I need to go back to in order to connect to the VCenter database.

Regards,

Hesan

Hi,

I would recomend you to try recall the original password. If not Try using the latest password that you used at step 17. Then update  again using ODBC connection with password.
