What error are you receiving? Did you verified the %TEMP%\vminst.log file?
It's the old 28000 Windows vs SQL authentication. If I use Windows authentication as a domain admin it logs in no problem. if I use mixed and use the vpxuser it fails. Rechecked all the permissions and roles, all look good. Reset the password, still fails.
SQL State 28000
Login failed for 'vpxuser'
SQL Server error 18456
Cannot open default database
My feeling with this sort of thing is I'm either missing something really simple or it's quite a bit more than that.
At present vpxuser is a sql user - would it be better if it was a local Windows user? As I mentioned, I have been asked not to use a domain user.
It's probably something simple. What users should the vCenter services be running under if not local system / network? I have a local vpxuser account that is a local admin, could I use that?
I had the same issue, i just reset the settings and everything owrked fine.
Just got it all working! I hope...
the web client works as well, but only with vpxuser, vSphere only as the domain admin. I'll have to look at adding in 2 more users but it all looks good for now.
Thanks guys for your time and help.
