Can’t connect my VMhost
I am running  VMware ESX 4.0, in my cluster I have two VMHost Host, I took one of my host down but when I brought the host  back up I could connect it back to the cluster. It showing the host with a red X,
I’m not sure how to reconnect, I tried right clicking on the host and selected connect then I get an error:
[This host is currently being managed by the Vcenter with IP address changes made to this host during this session may not be reflected in vSphere Clieent sessions viewing vCenter]. I click on OK then I get at  a box for me to specify connection I tried using the username and password that I normally use to log into the Client but no luck. My other Host is connected but no luck getting the second one not sure what to do.
