    Transport (VMDB) error -45: Failed to connect to peer process

      Hi,

       

      I am using ESXi 5.5, build 1281650.

       

      I am having the problem of not being able to start any VM's without getting the following message

       

      Transport (VMDB) error -45: Failed to connect to peer process.

      Failed to power on '/vmfs/volumes/51a6288d-06384dd1-6fd5-089e01a03cd5/test/test.vmx'.

       

      There are currently 5 VM's. 1 of them is running and it is fine, but I am afraid to turn it off worrying it may not come back up again.

      The above error happens even when i create new machines.

       

      I have in total 3 of these ESXi installation, all running on the same build and same hardware.

       

      Only difference that I can see right now is that int he server summary under Genreal there is no Image Profile, it is blank. My w other working servers show ESXI-T.T.0-1331820-standard. I do not know if this means anything

       

      Any assistance will be appreciated.

       

      Regards,
