problem with services on ESXi 6.0

After I discovered that I couldn't retrieve any health sensors status as described here:

https://www.emware.nl/articles/vsphere-health-status-unknown.html

I ran:

This has made matters worse and now I can't even see any sensors listed:

Current status of my services:

Any idea what else to try before attempting a full reboot?
