Problem to add ESX 3.5 to VC 2.5 -- unable to access the specified host.

Hi all....

I´m trying to add a ESX server 3.5 to my VC 2.5. After many minutes, VC display his message: "unable to access the specified host....." and appears like "Disconnected".

Then I remove that host, and uninstall and install the VC agent:

sh ./vpx-uninstall-esx-7-linux-64192+
+ sh ./vpx-upgrade-esx-7-linux-64192

I delette de vpxuser

userdel vpxuser

and restart the services

service vmware-vpxa restart
+ service mgmt-vmware restart+
+ service xinetd restart+
+ service vmware-vmkauthd restart+

and nothing happen, the problem hasn´t resolved.

This is the vpxd log:

Start with the simple stuff how are you connecting to your ESX host form VC - are using IP address or FQDN? Can you ping either of those from your VC server? Can you resolve the FQDN?
