Unable to rename vCenter 6.7

Hello

Our customer has a vCenter server with the hostname 'vcenter'. I've upgraded to 6.7.0.42000 so that I can rename it, but the process (as outlined in Changing your vCenter Server's FQDN - VMware vSphere Blog)​​) produces the error:

"The SSO username does not have administrator privilege."

Obviously I've checked that administrator@vsphere.local is indeed an administrator and everything looks OK. I've tried to create another user, but this process only accepts administrator@vsphere.local.

Google draws a blank on that error.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Cannot change the vCenter Server or Platform Service Controller 6.x hostname on versions prior to vCenter Server 6.7 Update 3

Is the PSC embedded? Afaik it is only supported with an embedded PSC.

Consider giving Kudos if you think my response helped you in any way.

I don't know about this one. I think you need to open a support case. The rename feature is very new so I doubt there's many people experienced with troubleshooting it just yet.

I also experienced this exact same issue! After a week of working with VMware support they confirmed in my situation that this is a bug and it will be resolved in the next patch. I am currently on 6.7u3g, so likely 6.7u3h will resolve this.

Certainly, 20139857807

looks like the next patch should be here next month according to my support tech.

I am needing this fixed so I can Cloud Gateway, currently it’s failing because the PNID isn’t matching the FQDN.
