I am working on upgrade from 6.5 to 6.7.
I am having difficulty backing my 6.5 VCenter. I perform BACKUP from the vCenter Server Appliance page. I connect to an FTPs server per the GUI driven interface.
After connecting i get an error ""Invalid vCenter Server Status: All required services are not up. Perfcharts"
I tried starting the service with # Service-control --start vmware-perfcharts, and I get back "an error occured while starting service"
I did some research and fond something which indicated that perfcharts requires IPv6 before it will start.
From the vCenter Server Appliance I selected -> Networking ->enable IPv6 -> "obtain IPv6 settings automatically through router advertisement"
This had no effect. I need some help troubleshooting this... my upgrade is stuck because I cannot get this backup completed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
