Management layer service restart

The OIT vCenter server had some architectural changes occur during our service release last week.  There was a resource allocation change made to the management server, vCenter, that was a little too aggressive and it caused a performance issue.  This was causing a series of services, the Web Client and Inventory service to become intermittently available.  The server has been restarted to enable the operating system on the vCenter server to consume the new resource allocation.  We apologize for the inconvenience and management disruption.

OIT - UPDATE - Management layer service restart
*****UPDATE (Reference ServiceNow Ticket #INC0031198)*****

Today after a change was made to address the Inventory service CPU consumption, the vCenter service (vpxd.exe) crept up to consuming all available RAM and stayed there for over an hour. A BCS support ticket (14548900510) drove to the conclusion that the changes that were made may not have included all that were necessary. A server restart will be done tonight at 6pm to ensure all services are started in the appropriate order.
No agency VM's will be disrupted or impacted by this restart, this is the management layer of our VMware environment.
