problems when installing vCenter 4

December 10th, 2009 No comments

when you having problems while installing vCenter 4 and get an error at the moment he’s installing vCenter Server Directory Services Instance check the following:

vCenter Server installation fails if the root drive of the directory where it is installed does not have Read permission


If you are installing vCenter Server, you may experience the following symptoms if the Windows Network Service account does not have Read permission on the root drive of the directory where vCenter Server is being installed:

  • vCenter Server installation fails
  • vCenter Server installation fails when the installer attempts to install the VMware ADAM instance


This issue occurs because Read permission is required on the root drive of the directory where the vCenter server is being installed.

To add the Network Service account with Read permission:

1. Right-click the root drive and click Properties.

2. Click the Security tab.

3. Under Group and user names, click Add.

4. Enter Network Service and click OK.

5. Check Allow for the Read permission for the Network Service account in the Permissions for Administrators pane.

6. Click Apply and OK.

Note: If the Everyone account has the Read permission, then the Network Service account also has this permission.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, remove the system from the domain, install the vCenter Server, then re-join the system back to the domain.
