I am running windows vcenter(6.0) on vmware workstation with local database (Vspostgres SQL) and getting below message.
Error Message : windows could not start vmware VirtualCenter Server Service local computer..depend service or group failed to start :1068 error
Below steps i have performed to troubleshoot the issue.
1. I checked vpxd.log file and found failed to connect vpostgres sql database ..
2. In windows services i am unable to start vmware vpostgres showing depend services failed.
3. I went to ODBC connection in system DNS and can see local server is refused the connection on port 5432.
4 . Even i tried to open port 5432 in windows firewall inbound rules but still port 5432 is not able to telnet and target machine is actively refusing it.
5. I am not able to see port 5432 is in listening mode …in netstat -an
Here i am attaching error snap and vpxd.log file ….Any assistance or suggestion would be much appreciated.
