Vcenter server Windows failed to start CM

This post was originally published on this site

We have a vcenter windows server 6.5 that suddenly stopped working and the web client fails with the following error

 

400] An error occurred while sending an authentication request to the vCenter Single Sign-On server – An error occurred when processing the metadata during vCenter Single Sign-On setup – Cannot connect to the VMware Component Manager https://vcentersvt.company.intranet/cm/sdk?hostid=e58bd8b0-bb2d-11e8-94b4-000c29d9b960.

 

Rebooting the server didn’t help

The CM service does not start but could not identify the cause

 

any suggestion is appreciated
