I am running vCenter 6.0 Update 1 and my host are a mix of ESX 5.1 update 3 and 6.0 update 1a. In the web client when I click on any host the hardware status tab shows not data.  I am logged in with an account with admin rights in vCenter and have the same results when logged in with the SSO admin account? I have read article on line stating permission but the fact the SSO account has the same issue makes me think other wise.

This may or many not be related but when I click on Service Configure to  check the status of the vCenter services 0 services are listed under my account and the SSO account

This occasionally happens with the Web Client, and this is the only place to check Hardware information with 6.0.

Have you tried restarting the host, and vCenter Server services.

Yes to both an no luck... also when using the fat client I do not see the hardware status tab listed. And yes I am using my vendor's (IBM) released copy of Vmware.
