Errors: Invalid operation requested: This ruleset is required and cannot be disabled

So I had to call VMware support today because I noticed on all of our Esxi 6.5 hosts when I attempted to run services.sh restart I received the following message “Errors: Invalid operation requested: This ruleset is required and cannot be disabled” which made no sense to me as I am accustomed to seeing all services restart when I entered that command.  But after a brief communication with VMware support they informed me that that was the new expected behavior for that command, and in order to see the services restart, I need to run the following command ” services.sh restart & tail -f /var/log/jumpstart-stdout.log” and then, of course, you need to hit CTRL+C to exit.  I don’t think I like the new behavior, but at least there’s an easy way to see the services restart.
