Anything on the Summary Page for the Host?

not a warning about HA Clustering and Single NIC, or SSH running?

Will check wright away, had other strange issue: added domain admin to local administrators, but it said it was already added with SID id beside it. When I clicked ok, the domain admins were not added. Removed VCenter from domain, rebooted, will re-add it and see again. Probably not related but needed to solve that first.

Latest issue stays the same after remove and add to domain (domain admins is already a member but doesn't appear in list).

Have you enabled access to the ESX host through SSH using root login?

did you look at the alarms tab, either from the host level or at the datacenter?
