Repeating tasks after upgrade from 6.5 to 7

Just upgraded one of our 5 hosts from 6.5 to 7.0.3.  Everything went smooth but am noticing every 5 minutes, a series of tasks repeat on the newly upgraded host.  Basically, the SSH access service starts, then it stops right way, followed by opening firewall ports.  This repeats twice, every 5 minutes.  The repeated events are below.  So far everything is acting correctly, I can vMotion servers back to the newly upgraded host and VMs are running just fine.  Just annoying to see the Recent Tasks area in vSphere fill up with these alerts.

Hi,

Findings in /var/log/auth.log could help. Any correlation to Nutanix / a keep-a-live meccano / collecting server?
