VirtualCenter Server cannot perform Consolidation Analysis (1003062)
- VirtualCenter Server cannot perform Consolidation Analysis
Note: This issue may occur when the VirtualCenter Server is installed on a machine running a non-English version of Windows.
- You see the error:
Connection to perfmon failed. Remote registry disabled or the collector service is not running with administrator privileges.
Ensure that the collector service is running as a user with administrative access across the domain and is running as a local service. These settings are not configured by default.
Note: Consolidation Analysis is only supported for Windows operating systems.
To verify collector service settings:
- Select Administration > Consolidation Settings > Credentials tab.
- Click Change with regard to Service Credentials. Ensure the account has Administrative privileges on the VirtualCenter Server.
- Ensure that the account can log on as a service. The Log on as a service setting is changed in the Windows Local Security Policy utility (Start > Administrator Tools > Local Security Policy).
Enter a domain‐qualified user name (for example, DOMAIN\username) and password.
Confirm the password and click OK.
