Thanks Andrew

My Response..
Does the issue happen often and ca it be repeated, or is it just a one off ?
just a one off
1. Update ALL firmware on the HOST available.
2. Is the HOST on the HCL and certified for 6.5 U1.
VMware ESXi 6.5.0 build-5969303 [Update1]
3. Update ESXi version to latest available.
we have more host running fine with same version
4. Are you using vanilla ESXi from VMware or OEM version from vendor ?
UCS B200 M3
5. Have you checked hardware for faults, using hardware diagnostics ?
No Error Found @UCS except one log[Entity presence MAIN_POWER_PRS #0x4a | Device Absent | Asserted]
6. Checked fans, CPUs, network interface firmware ?
No Error found @UCS
7. Checked storage controller firmware ?
No Error

Please help to get it fixed with valid approach
If it's just an one off and not repeatable, then monitor.
