    vCenter service died and won't start again

    dalo Hot Shot


      Today our vCenter Server died unexpectly and I cannot start it again. The DB Server (ms-sql 2005) is up and running. In the Windows eventlog I see the following error:



      The description for Event ID 1000 from source VMware VirtualCenter Server cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.



      If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.



      The following information was included with the event:



      Failed to intialize VMware VirtualCenter. Shutting down...



      the message resource is present but the message is not found in the string/message table



      I tried to restore the DB on a diffeerent vCenter Server, but the same happens. Also with a older backup of the DB. Has anyone a other idea?
