One of our Virtual Servers is un-responsive.  I cannot see the console and cannot ping the Domain Name or the IP address of the Virtual Server.  

All of the other Virtual Servers are working alright.

Unable to connect to MKS: Error connecting to /vmfs/volumes/4ad640fe-0e442cbd-1648-0026552684d2/wcdChallenger/WCDchallenger.vmx becasue VMX is not started

What can I do?

I tried to restart the gues OS and that has hung up,.

I then tried to power off the VM ; butm I get an error sating that there is another task already in progress.

Restart Network Management Agents on the Host Server.

If that does not help, shutdown or restart the Host Server.
