Complete with vCenter 6.5 support
The problem – ASDM Won’t launch properly When setting up a Cisco ASA Virtual Appliance (ASAv) in my lab I ran into issues getting ASDM to launch properly. When attempting to login I’d be prompted with the message “Unable to launch device manager from X.X.X.X” as seen in the screenshot below: The logs indicate it’s an error with how SSL is configured on the ASA: Application Logging Started at Thu Dec 15 15:51:05 CST 2016 ——————————————— Local Launcher Version = 1.
Perhaps the most frustrating thing about vCenter 6 is the hard 8GB of RAM requirement to simply install the application on a Windows server. To a lot of people, including myself, carving out 8GB of RAM VM in a home lab just to run vCenter for a host or two is a big ask. But beyond that, even if you’re using a physical computer that has exactly 8GB of installed RAM, if any of that RAM goes to an integrated video card, and thus doesn’t appear available to Windows, you’ll be blocked from running the VCenter installer as your system will have slightly less than a full 8GB of RAM.
