Vcenter server 7 remove license

Hi, my vcenter server 7 has problems because more services don't start and i have 

HTTP Status 500 – Internal Server Error

when try to login in my vsphere client

Restored backup is not working

How do you remove the license to create a new instance without vsphere client

Check your Certificates in vCenter from SSH. Looks like they are expired.

First of all you have to SSH to the vCenter VCSA directly. There you have to check which services aren´t able to start, often it isn´t only vpxd or webclient. Then you have to check the certificates store if there are some expired certs or a broken certchain.

There are a lot of KB´s with Shell-Scripts to repair specific certificates issues.
