ESX Host on Wan link constantly disconnecting
Posted on 2011-04-19
We have a Virtual Centre in our office and we have 3 host locally in the office.
We put a new host out in a Data centre and our VC connected to it without any bother.
The issue we have is that now it is disconnecting every few minutes, if I reconnect it is fine again for a 5 / 10 minutes but then it drops again.
I am getting this error - Agent Can't send heartbeats.mgs size 90,sendto() returned host is down.
Pings to the host are around 12ms which is pretty good for a wan link
I altered the "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Application Data\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter"
vpxd.cfg file and added timeout of 120 (which I believe is seconds) but issue still happening.
