the remote server returned an error: (503)

I had a problem the other day where I brought in my mobile ESX lab to show off some VDI. I plugged in the server and then once booted, tried to connect to the ESX server. I got an error...

"the remote server returned an error: (503) "

There was more to the error message but you get the idea. So I connected a keyboard to the server and logged into the console and ran the following command to get things back up and running.
/etc/init.d/vmware-webAccess restart
This restarted the web service which was needed to connect the VI client to the server.
