deleted 4 or 5 datastores from two esxi hosts yesterday. went to rescan all and one of the hosts timed out and then showed disconnected in vSphere Client. All VMs on the host are working except one (may be unrelated. I can ping it, but can't RDP. Get an error about not enough resources to login).
Couldn't SSH. Putty kept failing due to network error. Went to console and restarted management agent through GUI. Agent stopped OK, and quickly. It has been stuck on starting management agents for about 30 minutes.
Any help on starting the services without rebooting would be great.
