Start here at this VMware KB and see if the host is truly working again and that HA hasn't come into play

You might also provide more information on your environment.   Are all the guests in the attachment housed on the same host?

Is the storage datastore still available ?

Have you tried restarting the Network Management Agents on the host ?
