Cause:

 

 

This is a bug in VCF version 2.3.2.X  which has monitoring enabled by default.    
    VCF Monitoring internally calls SOS Storage and Network health check periodically .   
    SDDC Manager this health-check script triggers this in vCenter every 30 minutes.    
   
    You can confirm this by executing "/home/scripts/sos_health_check.sh --storage-health /home/vrack/tmp/host-disk-health-check/" on SDDC Manager and triggers the health check VM creation and deletion.
