We did not want to lose performance data from our vCenter, so we tried various things to see if we could resolve the issue without having to remove the host from Let me know in the comments. well it is if you're trying to clone a VM whether that be from a template or another VM. First put the esx in maint.

That works a treat!! Disconnected From Host. Reason Cannot Verify The Ssl Thumbprint Success. I don't think this is such an unheard of operation and can be done within a cluster so long as you take proper steps such as putting the host into Maintenance

Vraag me af of het iets met SQL 2005 te maken heeft…. and check if the host is disconnected and removed if the vpxa agent is still installed, if so check this kb article to remove it: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=1002531&sliceId=2&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&dialogID=30678559&stateId=1%200%2030684123 Rubeck says 19 September, 2008 news You could argue that you should remove the host from vCenter, but if you put it in Maintenance mode, nothing is vMotioning to it and plus you won't lose any performance/statistical

The trick is to remove the ESX server from the Datacenter in VC entirely, then edit the file, then add it back in. En inderdaad, het "wipen" van de VC DB is niet wat je heel graag doet…….. Cloning even fails within a host that was managing the VM you're trying to clone from/to whether it was on local VMFS storage or on FC SAN VMFS or NFS datastore!After It started to sound like the VCDB was over-writing any value for the Service Console IP because it had existed in it's DB and it's sort of proxying this self-DNS information
