VMM 3.1.1 SIM 5.2 - Communication lost with agent

I have a SIM server with VMM installed. The VMM agent is installed on an ESX 3.0.1 Build 67458. It's licensed and looks ok but when looking in "Virtual Machine Host Confiuration Details" it says "Communication has been lost with the HP VMM Agent service". If i try to restart the agent through SIM, the Tool launch OK says NO with the details "Host hpsealvh004 is not connected".

Sanity check -- on the ESX host, what's the output of ps -A | grep vmm

I couldn't find anything wrong on the ESX hosts. I then unistalled and tried to downgrade vmm to the latest working version (2.2). Which didn't work due to some db error. I took a look in "ms db admin" and saw there where a standalone db for vmm. Deleted that one and reinstalled vmm 3.0 which worked, then i upgraded that one to 3.1.1 which also worked fine. So now i finally have a functional system.
Thanks very much for your interest.
