Failed to configure DC (Host is not licensed for this feature)

Challenge

 

Cause

The DC boots up only in the DSRM and all services are not operational. 

Solution

To address this:
  • Make sure ESX is licensed with the vStorage APIs feature.

  • Make sure that the account used to backup the Virtual Machines has full administrative rights on Vcenter and is member of local administrator on that server.

  • Work with a standalone ESX/ESXi host that is no longer part of the vCenter (make sure that root password doesn't contain "&" symbol).
