Can someone tell me what can cause the ESXi Web UI to stop working?
Also what is the service related to Web UI and the relative log file to check for the Web Interface?
Ping and ssh are fine. But Web UI is not opening. I've tried with different browsers but no luck.
Version is VMware ESXi 6.5.0
The Web UI never opens, it keeps on loading.
Could you please try the following:
I have tried other browsers as well, Mozilla and Internet Explorer. Issue is still the same.
Ping and ssh are working, issue is only with the GUI.
Please see this:
1.) https://esxi-patches.v-front.de/ESXi-6.5.0.html and be sure to have the latest patches.
2.) /sbin/services.sh restart ==>> from ssh
Let me know if this helps.
Please note that its currently a production environment. Would the below command have any impact?
/sbin/services.sh restart ==>> from ssh
since its production DO NOT FIRE /sbin/services.sh restart ==>> from ssh.
How many hosts do you have in your environment?
I would plan for upgrade of the hosts with latest patches, so please work on approval for down time and get it signed off.
I have 2 hosts but is there any other, less lethal option?
Below are the logs from hostd and rhttproxy,
Any idea what do they mean?
Have you tried to restart only the management services?
That's different from services.sh, which restart all services on the host.
Other tip is, press F12 in that blank screen and check if it shows any message during the inspecting element.
Now, I could see the entire screenshot.
Double-check if dns is working properly and configured.
Can you tell me if restarting the vpxa and hostd services have any impact on the running VMs?
No, it's not. They are two services for the host management and restart of them doesn't affect the virtual machines operations.
To understand how they work look at Undercity of Virtualization: hostd & vpxa & vpxd
review these items again:
1. Checking the DNS and Time (NTP) settings
2. Changing the browser to open web UI
3. Checking the proxy settings for browsers and system itself
4. Open the web interface from another client system and check the results
5. Check configured firewall rules of the host by running esxcli network firewall and allowed all traffic temporary if you required
Hi, Did you get resolution for above issue, I'm facing similar issue, where I can ping Esxi and SSH, but unable to access Web-GUI.
write the full path https://<ip> or <fqdn>/ui
Yes I tried with https:// ip
