vcenter 5.5: Management Webservices service failed to start or terminated unexpectedly

Jump to solution

Hi

in our fresh installed vcenter 5.5 (on Windows 2012r2) we are not able to start VMware VirtualCenter Management Webservices, we have many messages in system log:

"The VMware VirtualCenter Management Webservices service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 874 time(s).  The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service."

we have only found KB articles for vcenter 4.x or 5.1  , many says look if any other process using port 8080, we checked this..no other process using this port

Any suggestions?

OK, found problem: its not Port 8080, it's port 8009 which causes the problem . We had installed qlogic HBA Software (QConvergeConsole) which installed its own tomcat server. This blocks port 8009.

found in wrapper.log

Please tell me the name or path to the required log file. Is it in %programdata%\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Logs?
