Vcenter service failed to start


Error Symptom:

When you try to access Vcenter service it fails. The following error message appears when you try to start the Vcenter service ” Windows could not start the VMware VirtualCenter server on Local computer. For more information, review the system Event log. If this is a non microsoft service, contact the service vendor and refer to the service-specific error code 2″.

When you check the event log you get an error message “The VMware VirtualCenter Server service terminated with service-specific error. The system cannot find the file specified…”

Solution:

This problem occurs due to Vcenter server does not depend on IIS server. It works with apache tomcat server. If the IIS server started accidently, there occurs a port clash. To solve this stop IIS service and WWW service in the Vcenter server services and try to start Vcenter server service. This will solve the problem.
