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 ?
