when I was enabling the ssh service for one of the hosts, it gave me error as follows:

"Call "HostServiceSystem.Start" for object "serviceSystem-120" on vCenter Server "vcenter55.lacare.org" failed."


So, I couldn't start SSH service to remote logon it.

Please give some advice on this, thank you.

Yes, I clicked "start" to start the ssh, but got the error. It is in my attachment.

I got this article but on vsphere v5.1, i didn't have console access after I logged in from console.

It looks like it's HP's asm service issue, after we upgrade the hp-asm application, the issue disappeared.

thank you.
