no healthy upstream - VCenter Server appliance 7

Recently, we shutdown our ESXi hosts to switch some SD cards that were installed. The rebuild was successful and had no issues launching up the hosts and starting up all VMs. I noticed backups were failing so I started investigating. It all lead me to finding out that there is "no healthy upstream". I started to read up on a few communities and landed with the following information: 

VPXD service is not started and after a few attempts I am circling around with no solution. it appears that, in the summary page, status are healthy. If I go to services, most services are healthy while the rest are stopped. One that sticks out is VCenter Service: stopped. Any help would be appreciated.

This is a complicated issue, if you have support open an SR, there are multiple services that can be causing this in my experiance.  The last time for me it was the STS certificates needed to be regenerated

 

"Signing certificate is not valid" error in VCSA 6.5.x/6.7.x and vCenter Server 7.0.x (vmware.com)

I attempted to open a support ticket, however, it seems like my Vsphere server essentials is not enough to get support. I followed the steps on the link you provided, however the vpxd service is still in a stopped status.

What do you see in vpxd.log ?

This KB suggests it could be related to vc certificates that need regenerated.
