 I have a problem with autostarting of VMware vCenter Appliance in my setup.Hardware setup-1 x PowerEdge VRTX, 3 x server modules PowerEdge M520. Software setup- 3 x ESXi 5.1 running VMware, 1 x VMware vCenter Server Appliance 5.1.0

Problem-My three ESXi is running in a cluster and one of the server is running vCenter Server Appliance. I have configured then to run High Avaiability (HA).When I take the power of the PowerEdge VRTX and then plugs it in all server nodes starts, but the VMware vCenter Serer Applicance does not start automatically.How can I get vCenter Server Appliance to start automatically with the 3 server modules?

solution -In order to get the vCenter Server Appliance to start on power up you will need to set the vCenter VM as follows.

  1. Connect to the host with the vSphere Client.
  2. Select the Configuration Tab, and find the Virtual Machine Startup / Shutdown item from the Software section of the screen. You’ll see a list of the virtual machines that are registered to the host, and a summary of their startup / shutdown behavior.
  3. Click the Properties link in the upper right
  4. To have your vCenter VM start up automatically with your host, check the top box. Doing so will allow you to configure your VMs in the next step.
  5. Click your vCenter VM once to select it, then click the Move Up button until the VM is listed under the Automatic Startup section.
  6. Click OK, and you’re set.
