We have a single standalone ESXi v6.0 host (HP) running at a remote site and noted that there were many errors thins morning.  I see when logging into the vmware vsphere client the VMs were all greyed out.  I could right click the host and the usual options were present.
I then cold reset the host and the VMs slowly automatically started to power up, however after about 45 minutes i have the same problem, VMs greyed out, timing out, unable to ping etc.
