How to restart the management service in VMware ESX 3.5

April 2nd, 2009 | No Comments | Posted in Software

How to restart the management on a VMware ESX 3.5:
SSH to the vmware-esx box and do a:
sudo service mgmt-vmware stop
sudo service mgmt-vmware start
or a:
service mgmt-vmware restart

or as root just:
service mgmt-vmware stop
service mgmt-vmware start
or:
service mgmt-vmware restart

This would be the solution if you can’t connect to the box using VMware Infrastructure Client, like if you get an error saying:
Error Connecting
VMware Infrastructure Client could not establish the initial connection with the server ““.
Details: The server took too long to respond.
