Restart management agents

I have a clutster with two hosts and one I can't to access it by Vsphere client. I don't know what have happened but the second hosts go out of the cluster and I can't add it again. I'm able run ping to it.

I have found some tips how to restart the "management agents" as follow.

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=100349...

my problem is when I restarted the "management agents" it stuck! and doesn't restart.

so I wonder if there is a command line that I can restart the service "management agents" ?

my currently Vsphere is ESXI 5.0

any tip is welcome.

The command from the ESXi Shell is:

./sbin/services.sh restart

All management services, including:

hostd, ntpd, sfcbd, slpd, wsman, vodb

Your virtual machines will not be stopped as part of this process.

When usbarbitrator hangs:

# chkconfig usbarbitrator off

# /sbin/services.sh restart

After complete restart script then enable usbarbitrator

# chkconfig usbarbitrator on

Using sequence above could regain manages Host (wih ESXi 5.0.5 build-821926)
