Host Hardware status Unknown HP ML350p and HP DL380 G7

VMware ESXi 5.1.0 Build 799733

The Host Hardware status is unknown. When I click refresh it stays unknown.

When I try a reset it says Call "HostHealthStatusSystem.ResetSystemHealthInfo" for object "healthStatusSystem" on ESXi "" failed.

When I try a CLI reset from here

I get a more detailed a similar error

PowerCLI C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphere PowerCLI> (Get-View (Get

-VMHost -Name | Get-View).ConfigManager.HealthStatusSystem).ResetSys


Exception calling "ResetSystemHealthInfo" with "0" argument(s): "A general syst

em error occurred: Reset System Health Failed for One or More Sensors"

At line:1 char:108

+ (Get-View (Get-VMHost -Name | Get-View).ConfigManager.HealthStatu

sSystem).ResetSystemHealthInfo <<<< ()

+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException

+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException

This is happening on two servers.

A reboot allows the sensors to last for a wee while, but they will generally stop working a few weeks after.

Any ideas?
