hi Guys,

Thanks for your help.

It turned out to be an Hardware Issue. There was known issue of Memory Leak with iDRAC.

Hi,

you could check the update manager logs and hosd.log  to see what exactly caused to stop responding .

location of logs   hostd can be found on /var/log/hostd

VMware KB: Locating logs for VMware vSphere Update Manager 5.0

Thanks,
