vmodl.fauly.hostcommunication error

While re-starting a ESXi 5.1 cluster. It came back, but one host did not join the cluster.

Adding it to the cluster (or at fisrt during a “connect”) it gave me the following error:

vmodl.fauly.hostcommunication 

Removing and adding it again to the cluster did not work. Disabling and Enabling HA did not do the trick.

Fix:
As it was ESXI 5.1 you connect to it (console or SSH) and type

services.sh restart

Now you can add the node again to the Cluster (remember to Enable HA again)
