some VM Guests randomly showing as powered off after mgnt agent restarts

Running ESX 4.1 as part of a cluster and after restrating Managment agents some VM Guests randomly show as powered off althougth they are on. To resolve this we shut the guest down using RDP and start through the VI client.

Does anyone know a resolution to this and maybe away of getting the VI Client to reconnect without shutting down the guest?

Good day Paul

The solution is to vMotion guests that are running with correct state of 'powered on' of the affected host, then run the management agent restart command /sbin/services/sh restart again, and the guests that were incorrectly showing as state 'powered off' will come back with the correct state of powered on.
