Unable to access into vSphere Web Client after completion of stage 2 installation of the vCenter Server Applicance

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have just completed my installation from the vCenter Applicance installer, i manage to complete the installation at stage 2 and receive a link for the "Appliance Getting started Page". However when i click on the link, it says that the site can't be reached, server IP address could not be found.

I need help with this issue, or is there anything that i need to do.

Then, as they say in Monopoly, "do not pass go; do not collect $200." You need internal DNS server with pre-created forward and reverse records in order to install vCenter Server. So if you don't have that, there's your problem and also first task you must complete.

You've removed the URL so we can't tell if that's set up correctly. Do you have DNS records (forward AND reverse) set up for this host in your local DNS server?

Hi daphnissov,

Sorry i am new to this, I am not sure how to check the DNS records but i do have a primary DNS server and a Alternate DNS server.

Let's start here:  Do you have an internal DNS server? By that, I mean one within the confines of your LAN and not something like your ISP's DNS or Google's public DNS servers.
