PCNS 3 on VMa 4.1

I have a server with ESXi 4.1.0 installed and I am trying to set up APC PCNS 3 in vMA- After the PCNS is installed and I get to the stage to add the host is get:

[vi-admin@****] vifp addserver 172.16.*.*
Error: Connection timed out

I have three other ESXi servers each with a VMa install and all these VMa instances can add all the other ESXi servers except this one that none of them can connect to. I can ping the ESXi from the VMa terminal.

This looks like a problem with ESXi but I don’t know where to start.

Thanks for your help in advanced.

Checkout this article, usually DNS, or lookup failure of the ESXi host.
