I rebooted the vCenter server on out network (it runs on as a virtual machine on one of the hosts). When it restarted it has lost connection to the hosts.

When I try to reconnect by right cicking on the host and choosing 'reconnect' I get the below msg.  Is this any problem?  I have not made any changes to the hosts while the vCenter server was rebooting.ESXerror

This should not cause any issues, how long have you left it, waiting for a re-connect?

it should re-connect automatically?

and clearly, if you manual connect, it can re-connect, because it's prompting.
