    ESXi 5.5 host LOCKDOWN mode grayed out

    trsorrell Novice

      I just upgraded 1 of my hosts to 5.5 and during the upgrade it rebooted but I'm not able to connect to it with VCenter anymore. I removed it and tried re-adding but it says it can't connect. I can ping it. I cannot connect to it with the Vsphere client either. On the host when I go into configuration it has the lockdown mode grayed out. I'm suspecting that I cannot connect to it because it's in lockdown mode? If it's grayed when I directly log into the host how do I connect and disable lockdown mode??

       

      I log into the host directly with the root account.
