A host that a vCenter Server system manages might disconnect from vCenter Server because of network problems or other reasons. If this happens, you can reconnect the host.


Required privilege: Host.Configuration.Connection


  1. In the vSphere Web Client, navigate to the disconnected host.
  2. Right-click the host and select Connect.


When the host reconnects to vCenter Server, the statuses of the virtual machines on that host are updated to reflect the change.

When the managed host is connected, the disconnected designation is removed and the object name is displayed in bold. All associated virtual machines are similarly labeled.
