Console Error Connection Closed (Error 1006) with CE

So I have a new lab CE setup. Its all on hardware not a nested install and I am using AHV. All cluster services are up and there are no errors. I am trying to deploy some VMs now and I am getting Connection closed (error 1006) error when trying to use the console.

The message in the console window is

“There was an error connecting to the VM. This could be due to an invalid or untrusted certificate chain or the VM being powered off. Please use the latest version of Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer if the problem persists.”

I was really looking forward to learning and testing out this platform, but I can’t seem to get around this issue. I have installed the cert on my local machine and I have tried several browsers. 

I did a quick search of the forums and found this VM Console Connection Closed (Error 1006) but the links are to support articles that are for people who have activated products.

Did I miss something?

Hello @Zaith 

I gather that you have already gone through KB-5855 Unable to launch VM console from Prism from the other forum thread VM Console Connection Closed (Error 1006). Please let me know if you have a Prism Central deployed yet on your lab setup?
