My VMware ESXi 5.5 "Free Version" host keeps getting unreachable using VSphere Client.

I do not use a VSphere appliance, only the host itself.

Firewall is open (Port 902), there is no network issues

Virtual Machines works fine. They keep running !

I have to log in through SSH and type services.sh restart

Then everything goes back to normal. I looked at hostd logs and can't figure out what is the issue.

Anyone have an idea?

  • What build are you running? What hardware? The more details you can provide the more we can help. It seems like this is a common problem. serverfault.com/questions/627200/… serverfault.com/questions/196928/… 5.5 is – quadruplebucky Jul 1 '17 at 22:58
  • The first link is the exact same problem, i search but i didn't find this ! Thanks, that's weird because 2 other host are exactly the same and they don't have this issue, and also same build number – Jonathan R. Jul 2 '17 at 0:53

Update your ESXi installation. The software is meant to be patched and updated.

You are on build #1331820. That's basically saying that you haven't had any patches or bugfixes for nearly 4 years.

Please update your ESXi installation.
