If the vCloud Director agent on an ESXi 5.x host cannot be contacted, try to repair the host.


The host must be running an ESXi 5.x release. If the host is running 6.x or later, the Repair Host option is unavailable.


  1. Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click Hosts in the left pane.
  2. Right-click the host name and select Repair Host.
