If pfmand on a vCMP host shuts down and starts back up, pfmand running on any of the vCMP guests loses connection and does not recover.


Pfmand on vCMP guests loses connection: warning pfmand[20332]: 01660005:4: No connection to hypervisor.


- vCMP host and guest(s) both have pfmand.healthstatus set to "enable" - pfmand on the host shuts down and starts up again. This can sometimes occur due to re-licensing on the host.


Rebooting the vCMP host will allow the pfmand connection to be be re-established.
