vmware-dataservice-sca status changed from green to yellow

vCenter Appliance 6.0
ESXi 5.5


We upgraded vCenter from 5.5 to 6.0 last week.  Started getting the following alerts since yesterday at the interval of 8 to10  minutes:
VMware vCenter - Alarm alarm.HealthStatusChangedAlarm] vmware-dataservice-sca status changed from green to yellow

and

VMware vCenter - Alarm alarm.HealthStatusChangedAlarm] vsphere-client status changed from green to yellow

Note: Esxi hosts still running 5.5 and preparing to upgrade soon.

How serious are these alerts and how do I correct it?

Thanks,

This could be happening because the servers don't have the proper alarm since they are running a different version.

Check Hosts for Alerts

Thanks Andrew and Trent.

I just have three hosts.

I checked the monitor tab from vsphere web client  for issues, events and hardware status for each hosts and nothing is registered.
It's possibly a phantom alert.

Check all services in vCenter are started and running.

My peer took a day off and don't have local vSphere administrator account. I am planning to reboot the appliance.

@Andrew  - does this sound like a good idea?

Thanks,
The vCenter Server only performs a management task, and does not affect running VMs, if it's restarted or unavailable.

As for restarting for the sake of restarting, I would be patient, and wait until you can login.

I rebooted the vCenter Appliance.
One alert seem to have gone - VMware vCenter - Alarm alarm.HealthStatusChangedAlarm] vsphere-client status changed from green to yellow

I am still getting the following alert alternately every 8-10 minutes
VMware vCenter - Alarm alarm.HealthStatusChangedAlarm] vmware-dataservice-sca status changed from green to yellow
and
VMware vCenter - Alarm alarm.HealthStatusChangedAlarm] vmware-dataservice-sca status changed from yellow to green

Thanks,

Spoke too soon.  First alert back again:

VMware vCenter - Alarm alarm.HealthStatusChangedAlarm] vsphere-client status changed from green to yellow

Errors seem to have settled down except for a new one VMware-vpostgress status changed from green to gray.

Is vSphere 6.0 still buggy?

Thanks Andrew.

It seems VMware didn't fix this issue in 6.0 update 1 .  Warning went away after implementing work around detailed on the following articles.
