  • 1.  Error adding host to vCenter - AdapterServer Not Initialized

    Posted Sep 19, 2016 07:36 PM

    After purchasing vSphere Essentials I was able to add one of my ESXi boxes as a host to vCenter, however when adding the second it fails with the oh so specific "general system error".  In the hostd.log on the offending ESXi box it gives the error "AdapterServer caught exception: Not initialized".  I am unable to find any reference to that specific AdapterServer exception anywhere.

    Has anyone experienced this error or perhaps be able to offer some guidance?

    I've attached the relevant part of the hostd log file.

    Thanks,

    Keith

    I would restart the management agents on the affected host and try again.

    I hope this helps

    Thanks for the tip, however I'd already tried that.  After bouncing the esxi box I was able to add it.

    Thanks so much.  After I restarted the host that I couldn't add, I was able to add it right away.
