Hey guys,

We have a vmware enviornment with vsphere 6.0

When i tried to open the console on the VM's, it says

UNABLE TO CONNECT TO THE MKS: FAILED TO CONNECT TO SERVER 172.16.101.10:902

What could cause this?

It could be firewall, it could be a VM with registration issues, does it happen to ALL VMs.

It could be a DNS, forward and reverse DNS issue.

it could be Management Agents which need restarting.

So

1. All VMs ?
2. Can you ping the host server by DNS (FQDN), Hostname ?
3. Can you traceroute to hostname, and does it resolve IP Address to Hostname ?
4. Just started to happen or new install ?
