Fixing VMware ESX cannot synchronize host

In the process of upgrading some ESXi hosts, I had one host that showed an error as follows.

vmware esx cannot synchronize host

To resolve this issue, resynchronize the password with the vCenter Server database.

To resynchronize the password with the vCenter Server database:
  1. Right-click the ESXi host and click Disconnect.
  2. Reconnect the host and enter the root password when prompted.

  1. I am facing the same issue in my VMware environment with alert as “Host Connection and Power State” Is there any other way apart from disconnecting the host from Vmware environment? I don’t have the root password.

      I don’t think there is another way but there is a way to recover your root password. Re-install ESXi on the host and you will be able to create a new root password.
