          Try starting the service after disabling IIS Admin and World Wide Publishing services.

           

          Steps are available in this article.

              I have the same issue (I think). After (clean) install on Win2k8 R2 VM, I start up the server. It worked fine, I was able to logon via the vSphere client. To increase performance. I stopped the vCenter Server service, shutdown the machine. I doubled Memory from 8gb to 16gb via vSphere client directly on the ESX host.

               

              When the server came back online, the vCenter service would/will not start.

               

              I checked the forums and several documents (Checking ODBC DSN, NSLOOKUP)

               

               

              My log looks as follow :

                Were you able to resolve this issue?  What was the fix?

                  Also having the same issue.

                   

                  VMware, any thoughts on this?

                   

                  Thanks!

                    Is the SSO service running?

                     

                    Can you try re-pointing the VC/Inventory service etc to SSO and check?

                     

                    If a repointing does not work, uninstall and reinstall SSO and then repoint the VC/Inventory service etc back to SSO and check

                      I had this problem, and found my RSA_USER account's password had expired.  The SSO service started, but couldn't properly service the VC/Inventory service.
