  • Can Not add ESX server to VC

    Hi,

    We have ESX 3.5 update 5 in our environment. Recently we have built 5 new ESX servers and while adding these ESX servers to VC, first 4 servers has been added without any problem but the 5th server is not getting added. The server is pinging successfully with both name and Ip address. There is no license issue.

    Please let me know how to resolve this issue

    Regards

    What error messages are you getting when trying to add it to VC?

    Can you log on locally with the root account?

        I take it you can ping the Service Console IP address from the VC?

          Hi,

          Yes, I can ping the SC from VC.

          Someone told me that when ESX server is added into a VC, a agent is installed on ESX server, mat be that agent s corrupted. Try to remove it and then try again.

          But not sure how to remove that agent.
