This morning I came in to find that one of my ESXi hosts is disconnected in vCenter. Attempting to reconnect gives the following error:
Cannot contact the specified host. The host may not be available on the network, a network configuration problem may exist or the management services on this host may not be responding.
Following the VMware KB procedures in " Restarting the Management agents on an ESXi or ESX host (1003490)" i tried restarting the management agents via the DCUI. I pressed F2 and received a login prompt. I enter the root credentials and pressed Enter. The screen went back to the default splash screen and now hitting F2 does nothing (nor does hitting F12).
Continuing to follow the same KB article, I tried restart the management agents via SSH and received errors about "no space left on device" (See attached Image
). There is 1.5TB free on the VMFS-5 volume.
Can anyone suggest how to proceed with regaining connectivity of the host to vCenter or the viClient?
