I wanted to create a content library to help me move stuff between sites. Which is an amazing good idea by the way! But it failed. I saw in the recent events %S when I tried to create a content library. I had just upgraded to Update 1 of vSphere 6.5.
I could not find anything useful via Google. So I decided to try starting services manually on my VCSA.
And I see an actual failure to start the Content Library service so that means the error I got was legit. But why was the service not working?
I could not find why so I reached out to talk with VMware Support. I heard that it was a result of my Update 1, and did not always happen. In my case I updated via the Appliance Updates option. So very easy for me, but maybe it made this happen?
But they did have a solution: KB Article
Yes, the article is about OVF stuff, but ignore that. I followed the steps 1 to 8 and it worked. I saw my previous CL, and I could create a new one.
