VMStartTomcatImmediate not starting 1603 error. Now ....MainEngineThread is returning 1603

Starting a New Discussion thread.

So i started with this issue... TomCat reporting 1603, being unable to start....

28424_28424.pngScreen Shot 2013-05-22 at 17.15.08.png

But all i got from the logs was:

CustomAction VM_Start Tomcat Immediate returned actual error code 1603.

I tried deleting all from %TEMP%, and created a whole dedicated vmware account on this windows 2012 server 64bit (btw), albeit the "all-in-one" installation crashed out here. Everything i have tried so far... didnt work.

Im stuck here. There is no further FYI information on the forums or knowledge board.

At this point, all and any tips are welcome...

Else its back to square one for me to have a go.

--------

I found the SQL process in the services list and created a dedicated (linux style) user "vmware" to drive all the vmware related services.

Screen Shot 2013-05-23 at 14.38.48.png

This meant that SQL Service required by the VMWARE prerequisites (database) is now accessible. - presumingly error 1603 "resolved.

I would really appreciate if someone could tell me why so many issues exists for vanilla setup. Windows 2012 basic configuration only .NET SP1 3.5 only. No further services + vCenter 5.1 = default installation does not compute.

If anyone could give me further tips/FYI - MUCH MUCH appreciated now.

Thank you!!

Yes, and my bad for not updating community at large.

I have further "fun" or reconfiguring the vcenter once i have moved to another vlan(CHANGE OF IP) but thats for another day.

Meanwhile, vCenter failed to start(auto or otherwise) due to missing dependency. Very Windows thing.

VirtualCenter Server service relies on the ProtectedStorage service which was removed from Win8/Server 2012.

The work around is the following (naturally at your own risk) – open regedit and go to:

\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\vpxd and the Open the DependOnService key and remove ProtectedStorage from the list.

Restart the whole WinBox and it should start without complaining.

Hope this helps. and yes This means I am running vCenter 5.1 on "unsupported" Windows 2012 Server edition. Phew!

Just had this exact issue, went into webclient and added a service account I created to the admins group for vsphere.local and the set the service to start as this account. Works now, hope this helps someone.
