vCenter Server Appliance 5.1 Configuration

I am writing this article as I got few queries, that while they deploy appliance for vCenter 5.1 there is some issue with SSO and then vCenter service is not coming up.

So in this case I can advice one thing, once your vCenter Appliance deployment completed then power on the same, before connecting to the Web Based interface to do initial configuration configure the hostname and ip address, DNS etc, to do that connect to console of vCenter Appliance VM and then login to the appliance. Once logon after that you need to run the script given at below mentioned path:-


this will give you the choice to do hostname, ip addess, dns, gateway etc config options.
once you confirm that all the configuration is correct. Then you can restart the appliance.

Once appliance is back, now you can
and then logon to appliance with user root and password as you configure and then do the initial setup to make the vCenter Service up and running.
