I have an ESX host that shows disconnected from Vcenter. I can ping it from the Vcenter server.

When I right-click on it and try to connect it will give me a message :
reconnecting a host will override any resource management changes that were made directly on the host.to keep these changes, remove host from inventory and add it again.

if I select Remove, I get another message that says "removing a host will remove all its associated virtual machines….."

I am not sure which of the options I should select to make the ESX host shows up in Vcenter as online…

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks
