          If this is truley your issue, the command is



          service sshd restart



          other options are



          Usage: service < option > | --status-all | [ service_name command ]



          chkconfig --list (this will show you the status of the services)  run level 3 4 5 should be set to "on"

            to check if the service is running :



            /etc/init.d/sshd status



            To restart the service



            /etc/init.d/sshd restart



            check if from your client you can see the 22/tcp port open.



            What do you mean for "can't connect", you can't login as root or you can't connect at all.

              I couldn't connect at all. I realized that my machine may have been on the wrong vlan so I ran the following command and changed the service console to the correct VLAN ID:



              <esxcfg-vswitch vSwitch0 -p "Service Console" -v 102>      102 being the correct Vlan id..






              Thanks again for your help.

                FYI: this thread has been moved to the ESX 3.5 Configuration forum.
