Performance Overview might not be displayed if the vCenter Server uses SQL Express Bundled Database (1008329)

Details

If you are using vCenter Server with SQL Express bundled database and the TCP/IP protocol for SQL Express is not enabled, the Performance Overview tab in the vCenter Server might not display performance charts and instead display a message similar to:

STATs Report service internal error Message: STATs Report application initialization is not completed successfully.

Solution

To work around this issue, ensure that the TCP/IP protocol for SQL Express database is enabled and restart the database services.
 
To ensure the TCP/IP protocol for SQL Express database is enabled and restart the database services:
  1. In the vCenter Server machine, choose Start > Programs > Microsoft SQL Server 2005 > Configuration Tools > SQL Server Configuration Manager.
  2. In SQL Server Configuration Manager, perform these steps:

    1. Expand SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration, and select Protocols for SQLEXP_VIM.
    2. Double click TCP/IP.
    3. In the TCP/IP properties window, select Yes for Enabled and Yes for Listen All.
    4. Click OK.

  3. In a command window, type Services.msc to open Service Manager.
  4. Stop the VirtualCenter Server service as outlined in Stopping, starting, or restarting the vCenter service (1003895).
  5. In the Services list, start or restart these services:

    • SQL Server (SQLEXP_VIM)
    • SQL Browser (if SQL Browser service is disabled, mark it for automatic/manual start)
    • VMware Infrastructure Web Access

  6. Start the VirtualCenter Server service as outlined in Stopping, starting, or restarting the vCenter service (1003895).
Note: This issue may also occur when the database is remote and the SQL Browser Service is disabled. To resolve this issue, restart the SQL Browser Service.
