The vpxa is the vCenter agent which sends data to a vCenter Server and doesnt comes into the game when connected directly to the Host with a Client.
If restarting any one service would resolve this, it would be hostd rather than vpxa (which is used only by vCenter Server)
Please also be aware that 6.0 is out of support now, only 6.5 and later are supported.
hostd restarted but still not working
shall i update esxi host without license change ?
Are you sure about the version compatibility between the ESXi host and your vSphere client that you tried to connect via that ?! Check you should have access to the following URL:
Don't be hurry to upgrade the host. However, your current vSphere version is not supported and you should do it ASAP but not only for fixing this problem!Please mark my comment as the Correct Answer if this solution resolved your problem
I'm using vSpere 6.7 and have this problem too.
I tried to restart
vpxa,hostd services and service.sh, but didn't work.
UI on host does't work.
I can't open any logs.
But VM's are still working.
