Unable to connect to the MKS in vSphere are rebooting ESXi 4.1 host
Posted on 2013-06-08
After rebooting an ESXI host, I'm not longer able to view the console sessions in the Console tabs!
What I get is a message bar at the top that states:
"Unable to connect to the MKS: Failed to connect to the server XX.XX.XX.XX:902"
I've Googled this that all I can find is suggestions on modifying the host file and modifying firewall settings, but I can replicate on the same network segment and on different laptops with different users.
There are a number of virtual servers on this host with all but one working as expected outside of this, except one, which is the file server, has stopped publishing network shares, which it gets from ISCSI mappings via the ESXI host.
On typing this, there may be one thing that I have changed since the reboot, which oddly enough was to disconnect the physical KVM from it. I find it hard to believe this could be the culprit, but I thought I'd add this point just in case someone else has come up against this issue and MKS does stand for Mouse, Keyboard, Screen after all!! By the way, I'm working remote form it at the moment, but can go in if need be.
Urgent assistance would really be appreciated if anyone picks this one up.
