I have an ESXi host running a Windows 2008 R2 server VM with vCenter installed.
Upon joining the Host to vCenter, suddenly I could not log directly onto the host with the vSphere client using my original root username/password.
The root user/pass works in console just fine, but get "insufficient privileges" when I try to use the vSphere client.
The problem being the power went out, turning off the vCenter VM (and the rest [Active Directory]), so now I can't connect to vCenter to start my virtual machine's again nor can I connect directly to the host.
What are my options to at least get the vCenter VM started again?
