Problem

You can see this either when attempting to power on a VM, or when attempting to deploy a VM from a template.

The operation is not allowed in the current connection state of the host

Solution

Thankfully it’s a really easy fix.

1. Connect to the console of your Virtual Center, (either through the VI client or via RDP)

2. Windows Key+R > Services.msc {Enter} > Locate the VMware Virtual Center Server service > Restart it.

VMware Virtual Center Server service

Note: If you have the vCenter appliance, simply reboot it.
