    esxcli comand Connect to localhost failed: Connection failure via host ssh shell

      My host dropped out of vcenter again, firewall crash suspected, but the comand is just not comming up.

       

      ~ # esxcli network firewall get
      Connect to localhost failed: Connection failure

       

      I have seen this issue a few times on a couple hosts, and running the command below always resolves and allos the host to reconnect, but for some reason this time the commands are not running, any suggestions other than host reboot, unfortuately host is isolated with critical vms running.

       

      esxcli network firewall set --enabled false
