A General system error occurred: Connection refused

Got this error today when trying to start up a VM.

A General system error occurred: Connection refused

 

While it was annoying to see, this issue is easily resolved. At least for me.

Log into your VCSA and first check the drive space

user@VCSA:$ df -h

Confirm the none of the drives are full

Then check the status and start the vmware-vpx-workflow service

user@VCSA:$ service-control --status vmware-vpx-workflow
user@VCSA:$ service-control --start vmware-vpx-workflow

It will take a second to start the service but that should do the trick!
