    ESX server disconnects from vCenter after 1 minute

    PSL4401 Lurker

       

      I am building out a new ESX cluster and I was using this also as a testbed to upgrade from 3.5 to vsphere.  However I am running into an issue that about a minute after a add a host to virtual center (currently 4 but also happened with 2.5) the host does not respond.  I have tried this with a 3.5 u5 ESX server as well as a 4.0 u1 server.  The ESX server is up and running normally, and I can disconnect and reconnect the server through virtualcenter and it comes back fine. 

       

       

      I have checked the defacto name resolution and firewall ports and everything is able to talk to each other, and virtualcenter even makes the initial connection.  I have restarted hostd and mgmt, removed ssl certificates, cleared IE ssl state, and verified the managed server IP in vcenter but this still fails.  I finally found the following error in the hostd.log but can't find out what it means.  The results seem like it is never fully getting the system information and times out, causing the ESX server to disconnect:
