You can monitor or restart the HCX Manager services from the Appliance Management interface.


There are several HCX Manager services critical for VMware HCX operations. Two key services to observe are the Application Engine and the Web Engine.

When working with a support team at VMware, you may have to confirm that these services are running or may have to restart them. The HCX Manager services can be viewed and restarted in several places.


Do not restart services unless directed to do so by VMware Global Support Services.


  1. Log in to the VMware HCX Appliance Management interface: https://hcx-ip-or-fqdn:9443.
  2. Navigate to Appliance Summary.
  3. You can find all services and can monitor or restart them. The only two services that are optional are the SNMP and SSH services. All others must always be running.
