esx 3 server shows disconnected in virtual center

One of my ESX 3.0 servers has become unavailable in Virtual Center Managment Console 2.0

Everything shows as disconnected. I can SSH login to the machine, but when I try to reconnect virtual center or use the HTTPS site from the ESX machine, I cannot get it to work. I am still able to use the virtual machines inside the ESX host, I plan to reboot everything tonight, but has anyone run into this?

Thank you
