I'm in the process of re-registering my vCenter servers to VCOPS (with another username). Once in a while I have this error message:

Unable to connect to vCenter Server. Details: Failed to get RMI connection. Ensure that vcops service is running and retry the operation. Registration failed for VC : ( vCenter Server address: https://bla-host/sdk, vCenter Server username: bla-user, vCenter Server name: BLA blabla ) RMI interface unavailable

The 'Test Connection' works perfectly and fast by the way. I've been facing two issues causing this, I'd check both:

- Do what the error is saying you to do: Ensure that vcops service is running (this one is kinda important Cool). If it isn't check disk space and/or restart the service, and try again.
- restart "VMware VirtualCenter Server" if the first one isn't working. Then try again.

No rocket science but I couldn't find a lot of resources. So I hope this helps you.
