[HELP] Host connection failure

Hi,

Refer to screen capture, host and VM shown disconnected from vCenter.

But VM in this host still running under this host and this host also running. (I can ping this host and remote VM through VNC).

Please advice what's the root cause and how to fix.

Thanks !

With the host in a "not responding" state, and what you mentioned, I assume that it is an issue with the Management Agents. What you may do (which shouldn't cause issues with the VMs running on that host) is to restart its Management Agents from either the console (DCUI), or through an SSH session. For details see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1003490

Hi ,

Appears that the HOSTD internal process on the host is exhausted and and the host is unmanaged .

SSH to the host and run the command and wait for it to finish .

# services.sh restart

Try and connect to the host after that .

Please share the results.

Thanks

as other ppl have recommended, try restarting your management agents:

ssh into the effected Esxi host:

/etc/init.d/hostd restart

/etc/init.d/vpxa restart


or

services.sh restart command should do it...

Services.sh restart command will restart all the management and other imp daemons on the hypervisor there will be no impact on the running virtual machines.
