Arbiter installation fails - Installation Wizard ended Prematurely

The Machine which had vCenter and Arbiter , Crashed. Vcenter was reinstalled successfully on the same machine, but Arbiter installation failed with the error message " HPE Simplivity Arbiter Set up Wizard ended Prematurely because of an Error "

Checked the installation log shows

req -new -nodes -batch -config "C:\Program Files\SimpliVity\SimpliVity Arbiter\\scripts\ssltmp.conf" -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout "C:\Program Files\SimpliVity\SimpliVity Arbiter\var\svtfs\0\myconf\static\node.key" -out "C:\Program Files\SimpliVity\SimpliVity Arbiter\var\svtfs\0\myconf\static\node.csr" -subj /CN=VCENTER.ASSURANCE.LOCAL -days 1095 -sha256

I first attempted to update the idenity store

dsv-identitystore-init “administrator@vsphere.local “  < ESXiHost IP address of corresponding OVC> root

 

Ran this command. Now, the Arbiter service is seen under services.msc   But svt-federation-show still shows Arbiter Disconnected  

So, ran the command below

dsv-arbiter-instance-set --address IP --cluster "Clustername"

 

svt-federation-show  , now shows the Arbiter connected.

Hi @SapnaRai 

Thanks for the information.

I take it this is purely informational right, in case anybody else comes across similar.

You seem to have resolved the issue correct?

Thanks,

I had a similar problem and I just run Arbiter installation packet "As Administrator" and it worked.

Hi @B0ris @SapnaRai 

Similar issue may happen due to compatability.

Right click the .exe file,

- properties

- compatibility

- compatibility mode

- select tickbox to run in compatibiity mode for previous versions of windows
