Unable to apply DRS resource Settings on host. The operation is not allowed in the current state.. This can significantly reduce the effectiveness of DRS.

Our Web DMZ Tier cluster is spilling out this message and automatically recovering it after two minutes. Little history behind it, there were some switch upgrades that occurred last night from networking team. We have divided up each esx host to multiple switch so even if one of the two switch is down for maintenance, our esx host are still up. We did see fail over occurred last night night when one of the switch was down for maintenance but it was recovered as the switch came back online. All functionality on the esx host is fine but we are seeing the message listed above few times and it is recovering on it's own after couple minutes.

Please any help to understand what's going on would be very much helpful.

....I would start with restarting the managment agents first though

service mgmt-vmware restart
