Resolve some of the most commonly faced vCenter problems with the use of this troubleshooting guide
vCenter is the main component of vSphere and also the primary interface that administrators use to set up, manage, and monitor the vSphere environment.
This book will show you how to solve some common problems you face with vCenter. We will cover troubleshooting of vCenter areas such as SQL databases, single sign-on (SSO), password issues, monitoring, storage and configuration, and operations management. We then move onto grouping the problems into logical sections where the administrator can find the issues. One of the more important discussion points is around backup and recovery of vCenter.
The later sections of the book describe problems you could face and the solutions when it comes to the vCenter database.
