vsan-dps service won't start

Setup:

1x vCenter 6.7 build 15976728

3x Hosts 6.7 build 15820472

VSAN disks on version 10.0

I've been having trouble with my home lab, I'm unable to get the vsan-dps service to start. I'm not sure when it stopped working, it only became apparent when I tried to create a backup of the vCenter and I got this error message.

Invalid vCenter Server Status: All required services are not up! Stopped services: 'vsan-dps'

This is the error I get when I manually start the service.

root@vcenter [ ~ ]# service-control --start vsan-dps

Operation not cancellable. Please wait for it to finish...

Performing start operation on service vsan-dps...

Error executing start on service vsan-dps. Details {

    "detail": [

            "args": [

                "vsan-dps"

            ],

            "id": "install.ciscommon.service.failstart",

            "localized": "An error occurred while starting service 'vsan-dps'"

        }

    ],

    "problemId": null,

    "resolution": null,

    "componentKey": null

}

Service-control failed. Error: {

    "detail": [

        {

            "translatable": "An error occurred while starting service '%(0)s'",

            "args": [

                "vsan-dps"

            ],

            "id": "install.ciscommon.service.failstart",

            "localized": "An error occurred while starting service 'vsan-dps'"

        }

    ],

    "problemId": null,

    "resolution": null,

    "componentKey": null

}

I can't seem to find much information on this service or any useful logs. Anyone else had to fault find this before ?

vsan-dps service is a dysfunctional service from 6.7 onward. You may be able to start vCenter service in 6.7 U1 but from vCenter 6.7 P01 service will crash while starting. There is no intention to remove this service in further updates.
