Updating vCenter is always a pleasure … (Part 3 of 3)

Updating vCenter is always a pleasure … (Part 3 of 3)

Take a look at the first bugs i saw within 10 Minutes on vCenter 6.


Stroage Monitoring Service Failed:

This service it’s removed in vSphere Client 6. Explanation in this VMware KB 2115295.


Let’s search in (Fat) vSphere Client:

“Login to the query service failed. The server could not interpret the communication from the client. (The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.)”

This error is also known in KB 2143566. It has to do with the Windows intergrated login. (Use Windows session credentials)

-> the Workarround is “do not use Windows session credentials”. VMware Support said, this will not be fixed. WebClient is the future! 😐


After my vCenter upgrade, I also updated my vSphere Replication Appliance to 6.1.1. (Some hints a this point, clear your browser cache after the upgrade to be able to configure the vCenter connection)

In my case, I had the following issue in the WebClient:

State is “Activated” but has a configuration error. Luckily he told me that is a NTP service problem during mouseover the state.

So we could fix this fast 😉 -> SSH to the Replication Appliance and execute “rcntp start”


Hope you enjoyed! 😉
