VCenter-VROPS error message

I am getting the following error message in VROPS:


ESXi host has detected a link status down on a physical NIC

Recommendation(s)
ESXi disables the device to avoid the link flapping state. You might need to replace the physical NIC. The alert will be canceled when the NIC is repaired and functioning. If you replace the physical NIC, you might need to manually cancel the alert.

I checkedthe  vCenter 6 and Host  and there is no such error and I am confused how to fix this in VROPS.

This is currently an issue in vROPS version 6.0.1

see the release notes

Network link failure related alerts might not auto clear when the problem is fixed

The following network link failure related alerts might not be cleared if the vSphere Client does not report that the events are cleared to vRealize Operations Manager, even if the underlying problem is fixed:

ESXi host has detected a link status down on a physical NIC

The host has lost connectivity to a dvPort

The host has lost redundant connectivity to a dvPort

The host has lost connectivity to physical network

The host has lost redundant uplinks to the network

Workaround: When the physical NIC or vSwitch or DV Port is functional, confirm that the network issue no longer exists, and manually cancel the alert.
