Vcenter 5.1 not starting on server 2012


After installing Vcenter on a server 2012 I received the following message:

Vcenter_server2012_VPDX00

To fix this you will need to edit the registry:

\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\vpxd and the Open the DependOnService key and remove ProtectedStorage from the list

Vcenter_server2012_VPDX01

Vcenter_server2012_VPDX

Remove the ProtectedStorage from the list , click ok and exit out of the registry.

Reboot the server and Vcenter should start.
