VMware vSphere 5.5: Installing vSphere Web Client "Error 29102. Unable to Contact Lookup Service. Check vm_ssoreg.log in the System Temporary folder for more details."

I was reinstalling the VMware vSphere Web Client in my lab and the installation was halted "Error 29102. Unable to Contact Lookup Service. Check vm_ssoreg.log in the System Temporary folder for more details.", the setup would then rollback any changes made.

 
In my lab the issue was because I did not have a Reverse Lookup Zone created from the subnet. I logged into a Domain Controller, created it with the zone and manually created the PTR Record. Once I tried to rerun the installation of the Web Client it completed successfully.
