VMware host keeps disconnecting...

Last Modified: 2015-07-28

The Problem

VMware host keeps disconnecting from vCenter which resides on the same physical machine.


Connection to the host from vCenter seems to work, but it disconnects within minutes. For example, I reconnected the host and quickly tried to update the automatic boot order details for the host and got the error:
The data service timed out because a back-end task took more than 120 seconds. See the vsphere-client-virgo.log for more details.

I *think* the firewall is not the issue
I recently upgraded to VMware ESXi 6.0
I'm using VMware vCenter Server Virtual Appliance (vCSA) 6.0b
