Warning on hosts when add to VCenter

Hello experts,

I just added 2 hosts ESXi5.5 to VCenter but after that its appear not specific warning on hosts. I don't know what is exactly warning cause the Alarm tab is empty such as attached file.

Add host.PNG

I can process migrate VMs between host without warning message:

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks.

Click on specific ESXi host, in Summery Tab you can see the warning message.

Typically it could be, like your ESXi Host don't have management network redundancy, don't have enough shared datastores for HA heartbeat, SSH or Local Shell is enabled on Host, deprecated vmfs, DRS recommandation isues....etc.

What is the version of vCenter and ESXi?

Thanks,

Hello,

My version VCenter is 5.5 build 3721164, and ESXi5.5 build 3568722.

I also enabled SSH on ESXi hosts, it means i have to disable SSH to disappears the warning?

One more thing, why each reboot time i have to press connect at right mouse on host to connect VCenter again? Is it not automatically connect VCenter on this version or i miss any configuration?

See VMware  KB to suppers ssh warnings  VMware KB: Cluster warning for ESXi Shell and SSH appear on an ESXi 5.x host

Host should reconnect to vCenter once it come online after reboot. What you see in host events tab in vCenter?

Can you check vmkernel.log and hosts.log?

Thanks,

Haridas
