Unable to access ESXi

I am unable to access ESXi  directly from the DCUI
- Restarted the Physical Host
- F2 does not work (it just hangs)
- Error on VCenter 5.5 ( Update network configuration. A General system error occurred)
- I know it is Network adapter issue and want to add one.

- Is there any other way to force login to  the ESXi Host?

Thanks.

If you press ALT-F12, can you see the realtime log ?

can you access the bash shell, e.g. ALT-F1 ?

There is no method to force a login.

Tried every possible thing including the above.  The  Screen just freezes when I see the username and password screen.  KB Article 1017135 gives  many suggestions but just giving up.     Is there any way to get "old" logs from VCenter  before the ESXi host froze?
