Cannot add ESX5 host to vcentre but can connect via vsphere
Posted on 2012-08-22
I have a DR cluster with 3 Esx 5.0.0,469512 hosts.
One was playing I put it in maintenance mode and rebooted
Rebooted successfully however status continuously showing
Though it ay be a timing issue so waited 20 mins nothing.
So used vsphere client and can connect fine with root and see the host and vms on it.
However Ijsut cannot reconnected to it.
I believe that Vcentre doesn use root to speak to hosts, rather it uses vpxuser however
I still cannot add the host. I get an error
Could not contacte the spicified host. The host may not be avilable, a network configuration problem may exist, or the management services n the host may not be responding.
This error seems to be icorrect on all 3 counts though?
If it were true surely I couldn't use csphere client to contact directly?
How do I get this esx host reconnected?
