Host gets stuck at 68% entering maintenance mode

Another short one.

This happened to me in version 5.5. I set a host in maintenance mode in a cluster, and all VMs moved, but when entering maintenance mode the host stalled at 68%.

KB 1002412 states that this is either a vcenter problem or a time problem. I offer a 3rd solution.

Connect to the host through drac and restart the management agents. The host will disconnect and reconnect, and now entering maintenance mode will work ok.

  5. Maintenance technicians need to know about the much higher long-term costs associated with purchasing the cheapest possible motor. plumber Glenfield
