For this issue try below options it will work.

1)Cancel the Enter maintenance mode
My host was not entering maintenance mode

2)Restart the ESX host’s management agents
Done but still got error

3)Disconnect and then reconnect the ESX host to VirtualCenter
Done but still got error

4)Restart the VMware Virtual Center Server service
Finally here is how I solved my issue!

To restart vCenter Server go to:
