Cycle management agent using vMA?

Anyone know how to cycle the management agent on a ESXi3.5 hosts from vSphere Management Assistant?

The hosts console is frozen, and I am unable to cycle it there.

There's no way afaik on restarting the management agent, you may need to get to the DCUI (yellow screen) directly on the ESXi host to restart agent or issue a reboot if you can't remotely reboot the system.
