Agent error 301 problems

Hi  Everyone,

I am hoping someone can help me. I am experimenting with VCAC 5.1 and have setup everyone on one large VM without HTTPS.

When I come to installing the agents I have been hitting the same problem for a couple of days.   I am trying to get it to talk to my Vcenter. On the endpoint I have made sure the format is vcenter.domain/sdk as well. Below is a copy of the agent log. I have made sure my URLs are correct and resolve in DNS, I have double checked everything and now just don't know where to look. Any help would be appreciated.

maybe you are using http instead of https in the vcenter url?

Thanks for the suggestion. All the infrastructure is in http as this is just a box to evaluate with.
