Issue:

Unable to add ESX 5.5 vCenter to an Orion server running on Windows 2003 SP2 for Network Performance Manager (NPM). 

Cause:

The Orion server was not able to connect to VMware Management Web Service components due to increased security of the cipher strengths introduced in vSphere 5.1. Older Windows operating systems such as Windows 2003 SP2 do not support higher cipher strength.

Resolution:

To build the cipher strength to accept new higher certificates (2048KB), install the hotfix for Server 2003. For more information, refer to the Microsoft KB article An update is available to add support for the TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA AES128-SHA and TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA AES256-SHA AES cipher suites in Windows Server 2003.
