  2. In the VMs and templates inventory, expand the management domain vCenter server tree and expand the management domain data center.
  3. Expand the management folder.
  4. Right-click the workload domain vCenter Server virtual machine and select Power > Power on.

    Wait for the virtual machine to start and for vSphere services to become available.

  5. In the Hosts and clustersinventory, expand the workload vCenter server tree and expand the workload domain data center
  6. Verify the vSAN health and resynchronization status.
