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).

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