  • 1.  vCenter Service frequently crash

    Posted Nov 09, 2010 12:43 PM

    Hello,

    I have updated my vCenter 4.0 to 4.1.

    With this task I migrated to a new W2k8R2 VM and from a SQL2005 to a SQL2008 DB.

    We use the vCenter for our production servers and for our View environment, so it is very critical.

    The upgrade workes fine with no error messages, but now the vCenter service crash frequently with this error message in the vpxd.log:

    Thanks

    The KB articles above describes other error messages. For my issue this are no solutions.

    But I have opend a SR and got a workaround now: This is a VMware Bug! The IP address that I use is longer than 40Bit : 192.168.192.232

    The workaround is to use an IP address that is smaller than 40Bit like: 192.168.192.1--99

    At the Moment I have not changed the IP but I hope and pray that this workaround helps...
