Restart of ESX management agents

This is just a post to remember the commands for restarting the management agents on an VMware ESX server:

#service mgmt-vmware restart

#service vmware-vpxa restart (the HA agent)

Both of these agents can be restarted without affecting VM operation. Restarting them can be a useful step in troubleshooting if vCenter has trouble connecting to a host or if you experience HA errors.

For restarting mgmt agents in ESXi, this can be done via the console menu interface, see link above.
