ESXi Host fails to start after a shutdown not in Maintenance Mode

Hello

We shutdown our ESXi Host without putting it into Maintenance Mode first.

Now after we have tried to start it back up again it has been stuck on the "Initializing Scheduler" screen for approx 30 min

Any ideas on what i should do to fix it?

Thanks

Andrew
