Restart the host again, check the console does it fail to start, or show the final DCUI sequence ?

what drivers were installed?

are these drivers compatible with the host server, correct firmware on the host ?

are the drivers certified for use with the Host OS and supported ?

If not successful, you could always try recovery mode at startup

i was installing the async drivers for vsan. the host went to maintenance well. but once i installed drivers successfully it asked for a reboot. then it hungs up. Drivers were suggested by vmware support.

thank you so much your suggested solution worked perfectly.  i manually restarted the host and no vms went down as host was still in maintenance mode(ensure accessibility). Everything is working well. thank you again. i am still in learning phase new to vmware technologies.
