Hello @Nani321

Namespaces are managed by WCP service which is needed for Tanzu operations. Even if you are not using it, the service needs to be started. Could you please run:service-control --status wcp

If it is down, start it:

service-control --start wcp

Also here is a Dell KB which could be another solution to the issue, related with the same: https://www.dell.com/support/kbdoc/es-ar/000192615/esxi-host-fails-to-enter-or-exit-maintenance-mode...
