    ESXI 6.5 unable to be connected from vcenter. ESXCLI throws"connection failed"

    wraytheze Lurker

      Have tried restarting mgmt services. Tried services.sh restart. I've opened a case with support, but not sure they'll help over the weekend.

      I can't reboot the blade due to the criticality of the systems running on it (some customer vm's)

      Unfortunately can't DRS vm's off the blade as it's disconnected on vcenter.

       

      Trying to reconnect throws "Could not reestablish a connection to the host"

       

      Can't access the local web interface on the node either.

       

      Extract from vpxa.log

      If anyone knows of a fix, or can help - i'd be very appreciative. Really stressful :-)
