Restart ESXi Management Agents

June 4, 2009 — Leave a comment

As I have mainly installed ESX servers, today I was posed with a situation where I needed to restart the management agents on an ESXi server. Immediatly I was thinking I would need to access the emergency service console etc but I found the convienent restart management agents option in the F2 menu.

To access do the following

1. From the console screen (use ilo / drac connection to connect if needed) press F2

2. Login

3. Now press F11 to restart the agents

You can now logout again, this is a usual one to resolve a host that is appearing as disconnected and you are unable to manage it.
