ESXi host failed to go into Maintenance Mode
« on: September 30, 2013, 10:17:28 AM »
Hi all,

I'm trying to use the relocation plans to put an ESXi host in maintenance mode. I had it working before but now all of a sudden it is failing. In the error log it says "Controlling platform manager not found for target GVICESXi03"

Any ideas??

Thanks!

Have you tried to restart the vCenter server or the ESXi host?

Okay I figured it out.

It was because my vCenter server was not being managed by the FSM. Once I discovered and ran inventory on it I was able to successfully relocate virtual machines and put the host into maintenance mode.
