VMware KB: The Hardware Status tab displays the error: Hardware monitoring service on this host is not responding or not available – Solved

One of the alerts that often pops up in OpsMgr 2012 is that it cannot retrieve health data from the VMware hosts and falls back to using Vcenter. To fix this enable SSH on your VMware hosts and login to run the following command from the article below:

/etc/init.d/sfcbd-watchdog restart

I have not seen any interruption so far running this command.
