    “cannot contact the specified host.The host may not be available on the network , network configuration problem may exists or The management services on this host may not be responding”.

      Check your network connectivity with ESXi hosts first.
      Logon using ESXi Console & from there try to Test Network & you can also try by restarting the management agents which you will find in Troubleshooting Options.

      1. hi mayur
        Thank you so much for your response.
        I already restarted the management agents but it didn’t workout.I ll try with test network today.What if suppose this test network also fails.

        1. @Preveen In the Test Network ESXi host checks connectivity with the Network Configuration provided such as Gateway, DNS so if it fails then you will come to know where is the correct problem of connectivity.

  2. hi mayur
    am new to VMware but i tried with all steps and i wanted to tell you that it is test server,so am connecting the server directly.The issue still continuing..
