I have an open ticket with PSS about this but while I wait for them to investigate may get an answer here.
The problem is that when I click on a cluster in web client, I am able to see a list of hosts but as soon as I click on a host to manage it, the host disappears. I have to refresh the page from cluster view to get it back. We have done an inventory database reset with no luck. I also tried with different browsers and users and nothing improved.
Has anyone else experienced this? I am running appliance v6 u1b
Same problem here, Virtual appliance with 6u1b, and hosts disappear from Web Client, and appear updating (randomly?).
vSphere clients is not affected.
Thank you for any hint
I've not seen or heard of this issue occurring. Would you mind sending your SR # to aeckerle at vmware dot com so I can take a look and keep up to date as this progresses (especially since there are two instances of this issue).
Thank you for helping us. I have done the inventory database reset and closed the ticket since it appeared "resolved" but it came back after a few days. Like mentioned, only applies to web client and only to host objects. I can record a video and share the experience if that helps.

I did the DB reset and restarted vCenter. It was only good for a day or two before started happening again. I have tried different browsers and different operating systems with no luck.
Seems like the first time you login to web browser it is fine but as soon as you start clicking around the problem comes. So you have to log off/login to get it back. Only happens to host objects and nothing else.
On the positive side, windows client is still there and functional.
