disconnect hosts to vCenter Server 5.1.0 Build 947673 and appear as does not not after 45 seconds (always)

I have a very strange installation, it has been stable for 6 months, I don't know if it's conciendence after the implementation of POS, but now after 45 seconds, the hosts to build 799733 ESXi 5.1.0 disconnect from vCenter Server 5.1.0 build 947673 and appear as does not.

I can right-click on each host and deliver a Connect and servers are re-connected and then after 45 seconds, appear as the not responding again.

The vCenter is a virtual machine, on the cluster of two hosts, use VMXNET3 interface, fully patched.

Since the vCenter server at the time of her disconnects or does not, I do not see timeouts ping to vCenter VM guests hosts, I can also connect directly to the ESXi servers with vSphere Client and there, no problem, I still connected.

DNS is correct, default gateway is correct, used data base is installed by default with vCenter (simple installation), SQL Express, database is not full or has reached its limit.

nothing to the Windows event log.

things tried

1 rebooted ESXi hosts

2. restart network management officers

3 upgrade vCenter Server to build build 947673

4 restarted vCenter Server

5. stop all virtual machines, except vCenter Server including POS.

is already done guest!

the newspaper of vpxd I can see the following:- so I can see I think that disconnection, but no idea why!

  • 'Disconnect' a managed host to vCenter Server: practical application?

  • Cannot add host to vCenter server as data store is shared with an existing host to vCenter

    Recently, I removed a physical host to a virtual appliance of vCenter Server and am not able to add it to vCenter Server because I get an error message on the existing data store.  I run a simple server vCenter environment with two physical hosts and shared storage.  I've only been administering vCenter for a few months, so I'm relatively new on the technology and processes.  I searched the Internet for a few days now, but have not found documentation everyone has the same problem I have (which I find strange considering the simplicity my problem and configuration), so I tried to get help from the community of VMware.

    I received an error message a day this vCenter Server cannot connect to either of the two hosts so I removed the host (rather than disconnect and plug as I should have done).  Now, I am not able to connect to the host to vCenter server because the shared storage data store comes into conflict with the same data store used by the host in vCenter Server.  I get the error message is ' "Datastore"datastore_name"is in conflict with a store of data that exists in the data center which has the same URL (ds: / / / vmfs/volumes/UUID /), but is supported by different physical storage." "  I try to remove the host data store, but get the following error message: "resource" data store name: datastore_name VMFS uuid: UUID' is in use. ".  The error stack said: "'HostStorageSystem.UnmountVmfsVolume' call failed for object 'storage system' on ESXi"IP address"."  Cannot unmount volume ' data store name: datastore_name VMFS uuid: 'UUID' because the file system is busy. Correct the problem and retry the operation. "I tried to delete all virtual machines of the inventory, put the hosts in maintenance mode, restart physical hosts, but none of my troubleshooting contributes.

    I don't know what steps to take to get this data store driving with the host so that I can add it in vCenter Server.  You can provide me with any help is appreciated.

    Good thing you already moved the VMs on.  For what is 'disconnect', 'remove' or 'delete' might work anyway.  You should maybe put the host in maintenance mode or even reboot the host before you can remove data warehouses.  In an extreme case, I even had to remove the host and the hypervisor installed completely rebuild on the spot.  It is not that difficult or does not take long to reinstall, so be not afraid on this subject.  A clean reinstall could still save time compared to the deletion of data warehouses.

  • Cannot add ESXi host to vCenter Server


    I created a home set up a VMware datacenter for study purposes. I currently have 2 virtual machines: an ESXi host with vCenter Server Appliance deployed on this subject.

    I configured the server vCenter through web interface device and I have connected using vSphere Client.

    I created a data center, but when I try to add a host, I get "ERROR: the request exceeded."
    Connection with vSphere client directly to the ESXi host works.

    I can connect using SSH to the ESXi host.

    I have disabled the firewall on the ESXi host.

    I have read many articles on the kbase but nothing helped me to solve this problem.

    You have any ideas?

    I finally got to understand.

    It seems like my vmware workstation is not connected to the esxi as a physical host in my local network host, and so I was able to ping it unit of vCenter Server (but it worked the other way around, and that's why I thought it was ok).

    After the connection to the physical LAN of VMware workstation settings, everything worked fine.

    Mr. VMware

    Hello, MrVmware9423-

    It seems that this may have to do with the .NET Framework is installed on the computer on which you run PowerShell/PowerCLI.  Take a look at http://communities.vmware.com/message/2174319 - users have been able to solve the problem with a newer version of the .NET Framework (v2, installed v3.5 - success).

  • Migration 4 and 3.5 ESX hosts again vCenter Server 4.0

    I'll put up a new vCenter Server 4.0 with an Oracle database to take the place of two vCenter using express databases included. They are both on the hosts recommended 5-50 VM for the Express database, oops.

    The first is vCenter 4.0 which uses the express database included is on a Dell 1950 server. ESX 4.0 hosts are on 2 groups on Dell blade servers that have 5 blades per cluster and are using storage arrays EqualLogic iSCSI for data warehouses. More there are a few individual Dell R900 and Dell R710 servers use local storage connected to the vCenter.

    The second is vCenter 2.5 that uses the express database included running on a Dell 2950 server with, like 20 other Dell running ESX 3.5 of 2950 using local storage.

    Looking for a vision a little and advise the host migration to the new server vCenter Server.

    Thank you... Jim Hurley

    I would say the easiest would be to create new vCenter new host OS (I would choose 64 bits that will put you in the conditions required for 4.1).  Once the new vCenter Server online, I then install a standalone license server for your VI3 hosts, then begin to disconnect and remove other environments and new hosts.

    Stand alone license server can be found


  • Cannot add the ESX 6.0 host to vCenter Server 6.0

    OK, I'm testing laboratory a vsan 6.0 cluster.

    I have my running 6.0.0 esx hosts and vcenter server is 6.0.0 also.

    I have the services platform on a virtual machine and vcenter on another. I was able to create a data center, then a cluster below.

    Then I went to try to add a host to my group and I get this error...

    Failed to contact the specified host (hostname\IP). The host may not be available on the network, may have a network configuration problem, or that the management on this host services may not respond.

    Per this KB: KB VMware: Add a host VMware ESXi/ESX from VMware vCenter Server fails

    I confirmed that my vcenter server and platform services server can see all esx hosts. From the vcenter server, it can ping the host esx and PuTTY can access all of them. I even installed the client and it can connect to all esx hosts. I used the netbios name, IP and FULL domain name and they all work.

    I have only a single subnet, so this isn't a problem. DNS resolution works in all areas of both sides, vcenter esx hosts and host esx to vcenter.

    I am quite puzzled.

    OK, after working with VMware on this issue, I think that I thought about it.

    All my hosts are DL360 G6 servers.

    My hosts are run the same build «VMware-ESXi-6.0.0-2494585-HP-600.9.2.38-Mar2015.iso» ESX Downloaded from HP.

    All buildings are in trial mode.

    After placing a call to VMware, they had me build some ESX VM, the services of the platform and the vcenter VM on an ESX host. We suspended because it took all day to go upward.

    Once I woke up all the parts (sql server, esx vm, server platform & vcenter) in virtualization nested, I created my data center, then Cluster then added the ESX host.

    The hosts added properly, no error. Then I remembered when I installed ESX inside a virtual machine, I am angry that the iso, I had the habit of HP does not work in my VM nested due to virtualized hardware.

    Then a fire came into my head. We will rebuild all of the physical cluster but NOT use the CV provided the iso file but use VMware provided iso file "VMware-VMvisor-Installer - 6.0.0 - 2159203.x86_64.iso".

    I did it today. I have rebuilt all hosts with the provided iso file VMware ESX...

    Spun SQL Server vCenter, service platform, all VM VM VM you need. My AD & DNS VM are on another server, so he has been upwards all the time.

    Connected to the web interface (yuck!).

    Created my data center...

    Created my Cluster...

    Add all my Cluster hosts.

    All of this worked!

    Therefore, if you encounter the same problem, I'm plan to generate your with the provided iso file VMware ESX hosts and try it. In my case, the provided HP iso file didn't work properly for me.

    I also downloaded the iso file of HP 2 other times to make sure and do a validation test and it did the same thing.

  • Add a 5.1 ESXI host to vcenter server 5.0

    Hi all

    I just installed an esxi5.1 host and tried to add in vcenter server 5.0 without success.

    The error is:

    A general error occurred: Timed waits vpxa to start

    Is it possible to do? If not, is documented somewhere? I searched a lot and found nothing relevant.

    The installation was made using an iso file, the new facility, in a shared, storage warehouse that has been formatted.

    I don't want vcenter server 5.1 as the impact of my infrastructure is high.

    Thanks for the help!

    VMware product interoperability matrix got the update and you would need 5.1 vCenter to manage 5.1 ESXi hosts

  • Process of upgrading 3.5 host with vCenter server Virtual

    Hi I have recently updated my old server from client to vCenter 4.1 virtualized VI, sitting on my 3.5 cluster.  I intend to use the Update Manager to upgrade my guests, but I don't know how the virtual vCenter server is going to face?  The plan was: 1. move all the virtual machines off-host 1.  2 put the host in maintenance mode 1. 3. on the vCenter server, create a base, then line at host level 1 to 4.1. 4. now - at this point add this host in the cluster? And migrate the server vCenter top, so I can upgrade the other two hosts?  If the works above, then it should be quite a nice update, if you cannot add the new version of the host of back in, how you vMotion the vCenter server off so you can keep control of the cluster.

    IMO, it should work. To upgrade from 3.5 to 4.1, your ESX host must be in 5 update (see http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere4/r41/vsp_41_upgrade_guide.pdf) already.

    If VMotion or migrate the server vCenter Server - for some reason-does not work, you can delete vCenter Server of the inventory of the old host and add to the inventory of the new host.


  • Displacement of the ESX 4.0 host a VCenter server in different Windows domain

    Hi people,

    Current situation: two ESX 4.0 host controlled by a VCenter 4.0 Server (Cluster) within a Windows Server 2003 - field. All the user access control is done with the users in the domain of the old domain. The cluster and all the VMS are running fine without any problem.

    There is a Windows 2008 domain. We want to set up a new server VCenter 4.0 inside the new domain and move both ESX 4.0 hosts to the new cluster / VCenter Server 4.0.

    What is the right way to do it without block me out Vcenter / ESX?

    1) implemented the new vcenter one create a cluster

    (2) removing both the old cluster ESX servers

    (3) joining the two ESX servers to the new cluster

    (4) granting the domain users from access to the new domain to virtual machines...

    Is it really that easy?

    Should which accounts I include both ESX hosts to the new vcenter/cluster? The root-password? We have forgotten, but there is a way to reset it (single user mode), this shouldn't be a big problem.

    Thank you for your kind support,


    You must add the hosts to the new cluster through their DNS names and supply the root password when prompted.

    Make sure that select "piggyback pools of resources of the host" If you want to keep your pools on the new vCenter. To do this you must enable DRS in the new cluster too.

  • Effects of the change of name of ESX host windows vcenter server sits

    I made a change to an ESX host name and now I can not connect to the windows server vcenter is sitting on.   The vcenter sitting Windows VM on the ESX.  Now, I can not ping or you connect to the windows server.   I tried to change the hostname to return but still cannot ping the virtual Windows machine, impossible to connect with the client of the infrastructure, cannot RDP to windows VM, etc..   Is there a way to fix what broke?   Thanks for the help.

    Have you tried to connect directly to the host ESX (with the vSphere Client) and change the configuration of the virtual machine and the host vCenter? How about using worms forward in DNS to get the new name to resolve the old names of servers? In this way, either name can be used to communicate with the same boxes/VM... I've done it before to other servers (not the virtual computer at the time) when we installed a new server to replace an older and got a name change (to follow the company standards). We had agents in place who wanted the old name of the server, in order to make adjustments in the system DNS has allowed these agents to connect to the new server and facilitated by the migration.

    In general, I leave the host names and only once built server names vCenter. The best time to change is when you install the fresh software/OS, not at a time later than in fact. It is a good policy to have all areas...

  • Manage an ESXi host using vCenter Server?

    I understand it is possible and requires of the specific licenses for ESXi hosts, even if I find information on the VMWare site a bit confused as to what I need exactly. We have-

    1 License Server Standard 4 x vCenter

    4 x vSphere Enterprise license 4 (who manage our ESX 4 hosts this site)

    3 (and soon 4) remote sites that have the same server ESXi

    I would like to be able to manage ESXi host using vCenter as well, is this possible with what we have? If this isn't the case, can someone direct me as to what it takes?

    Thank you

    You need the standard by CPU socket for each host license to add to vCenter.

    You can always create a separate environment and get the Essentials Bundle (up to 3 guests max) for $500:


    So you should have 2 vCenter servers.

  • A virtual existing and running computer does not display in vCenter

    Hi all

    I have a special situation. We have 47 VMs on our farm in VMware. I've been tweaking a virtual machine dedicated to WSUS. I can access it via RDP, configure the settings and so on. For some reason, I needed to return to vCenter to verify some specifications on and do not see it...! How is that possible? I can see a list of all virtual machines in alphabetical order, but I can't find the that I was working on that is still running.

    Anyone know why this behavior? Anyone knows how to appear again in vCenter? It's really weird and I'd never seen it before.

    I thank you and appreciate your cooperation.

    Download RVTOOLS and check if you can see it...

    Here, you can also sort alphabetical...

    Another possibility would be Powercli: Get - VM *.

    Have you already rebooted the server vCenter Server? Also try to do.

    Maybe you can stop the virtual machine and then it readd to the inventory by browsing the data store and selecting the vmx file...

  • To install the server does not, after a Preparig to install the window hung for several minutes

    Hi, I tried to install memeo backup of a product for a moment, I recentley purchased. I know that the software and the product is not damaged, because I am able to install it on other computers. Its my fault see tho, I have the seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1 TB external hard drive, and I had planned to use it on several computers. sort of, I installed it on my computer windows 7 without probs., but when I was installing on my windows vista computer, I accidentally unplugged the drive when installing memeo instant upward.  Needless to say, I knew this would be a problem. Windows popped up saying that the dashboard Seagate (which is the program that installs Memeo instant backup) have not installed properly, so I clicked on reinstall this program with the recommended settings, and I handed the drive and started the installation again. When I did, the registration page (for the unit I was using) pops up and froze, so I closed its process, then Setup of the Board of Directors of Seagate Dash appeared and I started to install, and when he rose to installation of the snapshot of Memeo back, it opens a "Preparing to install" window of a windows installer and after about 10-15 minutes , another windows installer window comes up saying ' to install the server does not.

    Ive done my time just trying to solve this problem and believe he made an incomplete registry file, it whenever it tries to install it tries to use the incomplete record. If one has found a solution to this, or knows what that means of ' installation server does not ", it would be very appreciated for your advice.    If you want to know my characteristics. they are {windows vista 32-bit home Basic, sp 2, 3 GB of ram, 2.10 ghz processor}
