System Chassis 3 Enclosure Status: Controller Access Degraded

Issue: - "System Chassis 3 Enclosure Status: Controller Access Degraded" on one of the host managed by the vcenter server after it being upgraded vcenter 5. It is only visible from the vcenter GUI but there is no other indication of any issue.
additional symptoms:
every 2 mins it gives virtual fan changed from greean to gray and gray to green eventhough all the fans are fine when you check from the enclosure and all the fans are green and okay.
the hp show all report shows no error.
cause and resolution: the fact that it only shows up in the VC gui but no where else and hp SIM (hardmare monitoring tools) report no problem, rebooting the host resolved it.
