          hmm... it looks like troubles was with manually generated certificate. problem solved by replacing it with default SSL certificate

            I am getting the same errors in a lab envirotment.

             

            In this case I was doing a fresh install of the vShepre VC software, it was not an upgrade.

            and, the VC server is being install under workstation on a 2k3 sp1 vm (installing sp2 now, not really sure what to look for you w/ this software)

            and, I had a my old AD DC on workstation, then P2V'd w/ coldclone iso boot CD to my ESX 3.5 U4 host

            I did this because I could not install vSphere4 VC server on a DC (in my test lab I was OK w/ VC 2.5U4 doing that)..

             

             

             

             

            Update.. OK I was lazy.. Once SP2 installed I got a different error that said 'hey your a member of a domain, but we cant find a DC.. Updated NIC card DNS settings to point to the DC that I P2V'd to my host..

             

             

            MORAL of story, even in a 'test / home lab' dont be lazy or in a hurry and make sure your DNS is setup correctly . You cant count on broadcasts for name resolutions. I am guessing it must have needed access to the SRV records of the DC (??) or because the VM I was setting up the VC was set for DHCP and name requests were going to the default gateway frist it just didnt work. I was assuming it would just broadcast out for the DCs mac/address. But the error was unclear w/o SP2 being installed..

             

             

            Hope this helps somebody that was also in a hurry to play w/ the new software..

             

             

             

            Thanks..

              I get the exact same errors as the screenshots you show. Can you explain how exactly you solved this problem?

                im my case when VI 3.5 was installed,  I've generate SSL certificates for both VIM server and ESX hosts. so when error appear during upgrade, i've just replace my own genereted SSL certificates on VIM server (rui.key and rui.crt) with default, which was self-generated during VI3 installation (it was backed up before). after this procedure upgrade was successfull.

                hope this will be helpful for you

                  Thanks everyone for the insight. I too am having the same issue on a Server 2008 Enterprise (64 bit) box. This machine has never had vsphere loaded and I can't get by this error. If it is certificate related - does anyone have an idea on how to create the proper certs to allow th install to continue on?

                    I am having the same problem with a fresh install on 2008 (32-bit).  Not sure how to resolve.

                      I did find an error in the setup log at the point where it dies: The Windows component could not be configured because of an error: 87 "The parameter is incorrect." (Command line: "C:\Windows\system32\ocsetup.exe DirectoryServices-ADAM /passive /norestart")

                       

                       

                      I have forwarded this on to one of our account folks to see if someone can get us a quick answer, either a work around or a new installer (if the code is wrong).  I will post back if I get it to work.

                        I installed vCenter 4 on Windows Server 2008 R2 RC and found it a bit tricky. I received some errors which were very similar to those on screenshots. So I guess my workarounds would be also helpful for installing on Windows Server 2008. I recommend you should do the following prior to launching vCenter Server installation.

                         

                        1. Manually install the following Server Role using Server Manager: "Active Direcroty Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS)". No need to configure anything, just get it installed.

                        2. Copy the LDAP Data Interchange Format Data Exchange (LDIFDE) tool binary ("ldifde.exe" file) from one of your domain controllers to "C:\Windows\ADAM".

                         

                        Hope this helps.

                          No Luck - We already had the Directory Services role installed (it actually placed ldifde.exe n the ADAM directory - I replaced it with the one from our DC since it was slightly newer) - but it bombed at the same spot.

                            Hi,

                             

                             

                            Can you check the following

                             

                             

                            1) The machine on which you are intalling vSphere 4.0 is not a Domain Controller

                             

                             

                            2) Are there any ADAM instances running ( Win2k8 (x64 comes with ADAM installed by default) ,using LDAP ports 389 and service is stopped while installing vSphere

                             

                            • If this is the case see RNbq. The vCenter Server installer cannot detect service ports if the services are not running

                            When you install vCenter Server and accept the default ports, if
                            those ports are being used by services that are not running, the
                            installer cannot validate the ports and the installation fails. An
                            error message might appear, depending on which port is in use.

                            This problem does not affect IIS services. IIS services are correctly validated, regardless of whether the services are running.
                            Workaround: Verify which ports are being used for services that are
                            not running before beginning the installation and avoid using those
                            ports.

                             

                             

                            3) Make sure that your computer/VM is properly added to a domain and properly registerd to DNS.

                              It can also happen if you use the Compressed folders function of NTFS.  It bombs out in exactly the same place.  I had that happen to me.  Once I made the folders non-compressed, it worked.

                                I confirm that Degustator workaround worked for me. No need to install an LDS instance, Vcenter installer will do that. if another instance is running then there will be a conflict with the opened ports during installation (if using the default LDAP ports).

                                 

                                 

                                The "ldifde.exe" file was copied from one domain controller in "C:\Windows\ADAM" to the Vcenter server corresponding folder.

                                 

                                 

                                Thanks D.

                                  Hi guys, I followed up all advices like installing the LDS role, copying the ldifde.exe file to the ADAM folder on the vCenter Server VM but still no luck.

                                  I even created a new VM, deleted the old one, added it to domain and tried again but no luck.

                                   

                                   

                                  At first I thought it had to do with our remote SQL server / SQL authentication but exactly the same error appears when using a local SQL Express installation.
