Could not connect to one or more vCenter Server systems. vmware-vpxd-health-status.xml gets removed

When logging into vSphere I get this message "Could not connect to one or more vCenter Server systems" We currently use vCenter on Windows. Contacted vmware support. The person checked the certificates and said they are good.  Tried to run the services command, but fails. Discovered the health file is missing. "vmware-vpxd-health-status.xml". Was advised to get a copy from a sanpshot. So I took a copy of one from a snapshot and placed it in the health folder as recommneded. When I run  "service-control --start --all" it removes the file from the health folder and then eventually fails as shown below. 

Anything else I can check? Still waiting on support to respond again
