Vcenter won’t start

This post was originally published on this site

Hi all,


I’am having an issue with starting VCSA 6.7 latest version (photon os)

Management on port 5480 is working fine.

I’am getting error

503 Service Unavailable (Failed to connect to endpoint: [N7Vmacore4Http20NamedPipeServiceSpecE:0x000055aca062ef90] _serverNamespace = / action = Allow _pipeName =/var/run/vmware/vpxd-webserver-pipe)


Already checked the diskspace (after reading other posts) -> seems no issue to me
