vCenter installation stuck on installing Orchestrator
I had a problem with installation of vSphere vCenter 5.1 U1 server on Windows 2008 R2 SP1. During installation process installer got stuck on Installing Orchestrator, I left it for about 3 hours and nothing had changed.
- Open task manager
- switch to processes and sort it by name
- there should be two processes called vCenterOchestrator.exe *32
- kill one of the processes and vCenter installation will proceed immediately.
