  • I can ping and telnet (through SSL port 443) to the vCenter instance from the VCAIM server.
  • I am able to access and login to https://<vcenterhost>/mob from the VAIM server.
  • When I run the nodecfgutil.exe utility and enter the servername, username and password I get a message saying: Credentials Authentication FAILED!
