Restarting the Management agents on ESXi

To restart the management agents on ESXi:

From the Direct Console User Interface (DCUI):

    Connect to the console of your ESXi host.
    Press F2 to customize the system.
    Log in as root.
    Use the Up/Down arrows to navigate to Restart Management Agents.

    Note: In ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0, 5.1, 5.5 and 6.0 this option is available under Troubleshooting Options.
    Press Enter.
    Press F11 to restart the services.
    When the service restarts, press Enter.
    Press Esc to log out of the system.

From the Local Console or SSH:

    Log in to SSH or Local console as root.
    Run these commands:

    /etc/init.d/hostd restart
    /etc/init.d/vpxa restart

    Note: In ESXi 4.x, run this command to restart the vpxa agent:

    service vmware-vpxa restart
