As mentioned before, the vCSA's initial "root" credentials are provided during deployment.
If you forgot them, please see that mentioned KB article for how they can be reset.

The vCenter Server appliance has its own root account, that you've configured during setup.
That's the root account that you also use for the VAMI interface (https://172.19.32.84:5480/) .

As a side note. be careful with using special characters.

Hi,


@a_p_'s cautions about using special characters when composing your password is a great point.


We must remember that while via SSH or the graphical user interface of the vCenter object your local keyboard layout is used (e.g., in my case Italian), when you access it via DCUI (the console) the default keyboard layout is "US" and therefore entering certain special characters without having "the old ASCII table" at hand can becomes rather complicated.

In my personal opinion it would be advisable to avoid using those characters that are called "non-ASCII" to compose your passwords as it would also be better to avoid it also to name users or other objects in general.

Ferdinando

The root username password is provided when you installed vCSA at stage1. Please use that.

Hi,


Sorry but I think you should explain better what you would like to achieve.
Your first post reports a completely different condition from the last one, different host system (the "PC"), different vCenter object version, different IP addressing scheme.

Hi @maksym007,


Of course we have helped him, but sometimes there are those who want help but then, "when someone speaks no one listens".

In his last video he expects the start of a vCenter object and all its services to finish in less than two minutes and then he wonders why the result is: "no healty upstream".

Dear author of this topic, may I ask you, why are you so desperately trying to make a LAB 1:1 to your PROD environment? 

What is the need to install vCenter inside ESXi which is also nested? You are just losing in performance. 

Install vCenter in the same way as you are installing ESXi in Workstation. vCenter will work faster and more stable. 

ESXi has its own root password. 

vCenter has its own root and administrator credentials. Potentially, you can set the same root password which you are using on ESXi - on vCenter too. But no one does this - because it's more confusing. 

Next time when you will install vCenter - set another (root) for vCenter credentials. 

As a colleague said above, no healthy stream - means that vCenter just trying to start its own services, even if you see black and blue colors in DCUI of vCenter. You need to wait another 5/15 minutes till everything will be up and running.No need to go to VAMI and to check. This is not PROD environment.
