Yesterday one of my ESXi 4.1 disconnected from my vCenter 4.1 and when I try to reconnect it to the vCenter I get the following error,

A general system error ocurred: internal error: vmodl.fault.HostCommunication

I have searched Google and found that most of those errors are related to DNS issue resolutions, although I have verified and my ESXi server and my vCenter are correctling seeing each other, and the /etc/hosts file on the Host and on the vCenter are correctly configured.

I tried to restart the management agents through the console but the error is still the same.

Anybody can give me any advice ?
