Vcenter 7.0 Upgrade and Install Failure at 28%

Jump to solution

I have been trying to install vCenter 7.0 on our 7.0 esxi standalone server that we have. This is a new install of everything. I started with vSphere Hypervisor 7.0 and it installed fine with no issues. Since then I have been trying to install vCenter using the ui and it fails at 28% every time. I have verified that my DNS records are correct, as I read in another post that it might be causing an issue. I have checked all my network setups and there is nothing blocking the communication between the 2 subnets. Also to make sure everything network wise was working correctly and to try and upgrade instead of install fresh, I install vCenter 6.7 and it went off without a hitch. So I am at a loss as to why I can't upgrade or install fresh vCenter 7.0. Here is some of the Network information and Logs from the failure.

EDIT: As requested I am uploading the log files and images without redaction.

Here is how we have the network setup.

vSphere Hypervisor - 192.168.110.5

vCenter Server 6.7 - 192.168.111.10

DNS records - fcr1-vcenter.uwfcyber.net -> 192.168.111.10

nslookup fcr1-vcenter.uwfcyber.net

name: fcr1-vcenter.uwfcyber.net

Address: 192.168.111.10

ESXI Networking

Host Management VLAN ID 111

Management Network VLAN ID 110

These are the network settings I have been trying to use when I update or install vsca 7.0

Logs of failure:

Come to find out the VSCA 7.0 installer that I was using to deploy vCenter had issues. I can't nail down what the issue was with the installer but once we got another installer package vCenter installed with no issues. Thanks for all the help.

It'd be really helpful to see what DNS server information you're provided. And, generally speaking, if you're deploying to RFC 1918 spaces, you're protecting nothing by redacting all or even a portion of those addresses. You just make it more difficult to help diagnose your issue.

I understand, I am going to wipe everything and start fresh. I will upload the logs with no redaction and also the DNS information. Give me a little while to wipe everything and try install it again.

What information do you need relating to DNS?

I can see that you are deploying to an ESXi but is this ESXi already joined into another vCenter?

This happened sometimes if DRS moves the VM from the hosts you started deploying and then the deployment fails.

This is a standalone ESXI host and it was a fresh install and has no association with any other vCenter. After failing to deploy 7.0 multiple times I tried the 6.7 version and it deployed without any issues. But I will check on DRS.
