Error 'Cannot complete the License assignment Operation', Make Sure license service is running'

Need quick help from experts. In our production enviornment, We have vSphere 6.0 Update 2, with single vCenter server & 2 seperate Platform Services Controllers.

While adding the ESXi Host to the Cluster, getting error 'Cannot complete the License assignment Operation', Make Sure license service is running. We having this issue & unable to sort it. We already have available ESXi & vCenter Licenses. This host was already in cluster, however, due to some issues, we have to disconnect this host & remove it from the inventory. Now, after adding this host, getting this issue. Does anyone know what could be the cause of this?

Thanks

Rajat,

Can you check if the license service is indeed running ?

Follow the KB to check the status of the License service How to stop, start, or restart vCenter Server 6.x services (2109881) | VMware KB

Also, check for any error in vpxd logs and post it here.

RajatWadhwa2017​ - try rebooting the host and then adding back to vCenter once it has rebooted.
