  • 1.  Security warning only on 1 ESXi?

    Posted Aug 23, 2011 04:11 AM

    There is an exclaimation mark on one of my ESXi host but there is no alarm. After hunting around, I found that this warning is shown only at the Summary Tab of the ESXi host:

    Local Tech Support Mode... has been enabled

    Remote Tech Support Mode (SSH)... has been enabled

    The funny thing is that these 2 modes are also enabled on my other ESXi host. Yet there is no exclaimation mark nor wanring in it's Summary Tab. Why is this so?

    A reboot will clear the warning or restarting the hostd service, but that will disconnect the host from vCenter temporarily.
