I'll preface this with the fact that my VMWare knowledge is very limited. I know how to use vSphere and connect to a host to make simple changes. The issue is, for one of our clients we have a vCenter set up and we have Veeam backing it up. Backups started to fail with authentication errors, so I tried connecting to vCenter via vSphere and received login errors as well. I rebooted the vCenter, and now I receive 503 errors if I try to login via vSphere or the web.
After searching online, I saw documentation saying this could be caused by the storage being full. I tried allocating more storage from the host, but the host is being managed by the vCenter I guess so it won't let me. I was able to access it by it's IP:5480 but it logged me out immediately every time. Connected to it via shell by editing the boot sequence and accessing shell, then resetting the root pw and setting it to never expire. I could then login and it alerted me storage was low there too. I enabled SSH and connected to it and checked it using df -h. It was using 100% storage, and it appeared most was coming from the storage/logs. I cleared it out using info from KBs and now I'm at 53% usage. I also ran an update from the 5480 page and now it says there are no more, the current version is 22.214.171.124500.
I saw a forum post mentioning that someone fixed it by upgrading it to 6.5. Well I downloaded the installer and attempted this, but it won't connect to it to upgrade it.
Also just tried this but it didn't work:
I still have the same errors, but I can access it via SSH. I confirmed the IP and the loopback are listed in the hosts file. I've restarted all the services I could find.. I've attached some screenshots and I also pulled the vm-support package but it's over 12 GB and I'm not sure how to get anyone access to it as this would take two weeks to upload on their network. I also have no idea how to read these so any insight on what I need to check here would help too! I feel like it might be a simple fix, but I've read through so many articles and forum posts and I have no idea what I'm missing here.
Thank you ahead of time!
