Somehow during an update to vcenter 5.5 u2 the file xdb.bootstrap went missing I checked in the folder and there was two files named xdb.bootstrap.new and xdb.bootstrap.old. I used my best judgement and selected xdb.bootstrap.new and renamed it to xdb.bootstrap. Attempted to start the service and bam it worked!
