    For what it's worth, this happens to me frequently (i.e., practically every time) after rebooting. Luckily, it's only a matter of checking that little box again (and I generally only have to reboot when an update requires it).

    ESXi v4.1.0 - 433742

    unfortunately this is a known issue with ESXi 4.1U1

    http://www.vmware.com/support/vsphere4/doc/vsp_esxi41_u1_rel_notes.html

    vMotion is disabled after a reboot of ESXi 4.1 host
    If  you enable vMotion on an ESXi host and reboot the ESXi host, vMotion is  no longer enabled after the reboot process is completed.

    Workaround: To resolve the issue, reinstall the latest version of ESXi image provided by your system vendor.
