Are you trying to connect via ip address or hostname?

Have you verified the certificate?

Is the ESXi host connected to vCenter, what is the ESXi host status on vCenter?

Thanks,

MS

Can you check the certificate information and check the subject name in the fields and expiry date/time

How about the ESXi host connectivity to vCenter, is it connected to vcenter or is it a standalone ESXi host?

What is the ESXi host version?

can you check the hostd status by running the commads on ssh session

/etc/init.d/hostd status

Thanks,

MS
