vSphere 5.5 Quick stats not up to date

After doing a upgrade from mixed VMware vSphere environment to a clean 5.5 environment we noticed the warning “Quick Stats on HOSTNAME is not up to date” on each ESX hosts summary page.

Below you can see the screens with the warning.

Webclient

vSphere Client

 

After some googling I found this VMware KB: KB 2061008

In this KB the ask you to add some extra advanced settings in the vCenter. Below the setps to add these settings.

 

After this change is done, the vCenter service needs to be restarted.

According to the KB this should be enough but my experience is that the VPXA agent needs to be restarted on all ESX hosts in the vCenter. This can be done manually or via PowerCLI.

Manually

  1. Go to the configuration tab of an ESX host and select the Security Profile
  2. Select properties
  3. Select the VPXA agent
  4. Select options
  5. Restart the service.

NOTE: you will get some error popups because the vCenter looses the connection for a second with the ESXi host.

PowerCLI

$VMhosts Get-Datacenter “Your DataCenter” | Get-VMHost

foreach ($VMhost in $VMhosts)

{

    Get-VMHostService -VMHost $VMhost |

    where {$_.Key -eq “vpxa”} |

    Restart-VMHostService -Confirm:$false -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

}
