Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:
  • After installing Guest Introspection on the cluster in VMware NSX for vSphere 6.1.x, the ESXi host that is offline displays the Installation Status as Succeeded and a Status as Unknown.
  • Running the show log command on the NSX Manager displays messages similar to:

  2. Stop the NSX Management Service from the NSX Manager Web User Interface (UI).
  3. Delete the VMKernel adapter(169.254.1.1) that NSX/GI created when first installed.
