VMRC console has disconnected..

Hi Experts,

I made some changes on a vm with adding a NIC.
And now I cannot use the console anymore.
Do you know how to solve it ?

I have reboted the vcenter and some other vm´s.
And the added nic I already removed.

usually firewall issues cause console issues?

can you resolve the VM correctly via fqdn and reverse dns?

I have no changes made at the firewall.
it happens now with each vm, I cannot open the console.

have you checked from vSphere Web Client and vSphere Client.

You could try restarting networking agents on the ESXi server.
