Management agent restart

Jump to solution

I was requested to restart the Management Agents on an ESXi 5.0 host managed by a vCenter server 5.5.

The action is described on page VMware KB: Restarting the Management agents on an ESXi or ESX host

Can I restart the Management Agents without creating problems to the running VM?

    If I restart the Management agents will running VMs go on running?

    Will users accessing the VMs thru the network go on using them?

    Will users accessing the VM consoles thru the vSphere client go on using the VMs?

Thanks & Regards

Raj

Hi Raj,

  • If I restart the Management agents will running VMs go on running?

          : Yeah. no impact on running vms.

  • Will users accessing the VMs thru the network go on using them?

         : Yes . no impact on it.

  • Will users accessing the VM consoles thru the vSphere client go on using the VMs?

          :Yes.

Overall no impact on the vms running on it. only tasks like (vmotion of the vms will stop, and other ongoing tasks which are visible in to the task windows will stop for a while until HM service restart)

  Please consider marking this answer "correct" or "helpful" if you found it useful.

Thanks
