Running vsphere esx hosts and our vcenter server is a virtual machine and has the database local to it.  VMWare tools needed to be upgraded, but it wouldn't upgrade properly, so i uninstalled the tools and was going to reboot and then reinstall the tools.  After I rebooted it, it never came back up.  Not sure if it is hung or shut down.  Since I can't use the VIC client to connect, how to I troubleshoot this and get the virtualized vcenter server back up?
