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
Spot on, thank you ... The fix was to run
and select option 4:
Regenerate a new VMCA Root Certificate and replace all certificates
I have been seeing this a lot (everytime I make a hardware change on my lab esx) and I would just redeploy VCSA over and over again, this seems to have helped, making it easier than a redeploy.
still a stupid error message to see after adding more drive space to the datastores.
oh well, thanks again!
That may or may not work, this error just means that a service isn't started, it could either be a temporary thing or another issue to look into. This is the equivalent to logging into windows and getting stuck at loading user profile, or something similar
