I have a esxi 6.5 host that when I try to reach the web UI with the browser, I get a 404 Not Found.

Any Ideas?

What URL are you using ?

Have you tried the IP Address ?

Tried a different computer and browser ?

Can you ping the ESXi host ?

Can you access via SSH ?

Is this a new install ?

Any VMs running on it ?

Can you get to the console ?

Andrew,

It is one that we had at another site.  I brought it back to my office and gave it another IP, put it into vcenter with a ROBO license and patched it.

I can get to other hosts ui with this PC.

I can get to the console, and I can SSH to it.  

I checked the firewall and the vSphere Web Access is checked.

We want this to be a stand alone host in the end, and NOT in vcenter,

1. Reset the ESXi 6.5 to defaults from console.

2. Restart ESXI server

So you can access from vCenter Server.

But not access by using http://<ip address>.

If you just want a standalone host, I would re-install ESXi 6.5 on it. - re-check it.....before patching.

Thanks again Andrew!   That worked in this instance since I did not have to worry about any VM's.
