So I went to start up a Virtual machine and it wouldn’t start up.
The error I got was
A general system error occurred: The system returned an error. Communication with the virtual machine may have been interrupted.
Oh great I’m thinking, this is the same error that the R2 bad patch was causing.
Well I narrowed it down to a problem with ESX1 and yet other machines could start virtual machines just fine.
After a bit of searching I found a command to restart the management service on the ESX server.
Logged on to ESX1
service mgmt-vmware restart
Saw the service restart, and now I am able to start virtual machines just fine.
