Re: 3ware 9650SE-4l failure...Lost access to volume ESXi 4.1
Ok, so after many hours of trial and error I found the problem was comming from one of my new VM's. I recently did a P2v of a Win2003 domain controller and at first looked as if everything carried over fine. However I noticed the error stopped when I did not power on that machine. As soon as I powered on the new VM it causes this error and the whole system locks up.
Any patches or changes made lately? Have you looked through /var/log/messages?
The one change I made before this happened was increasing the HD space for that virtual machine. I am not very adept at looking through logs so I'm not sure what to look for. I was not able to find the error in the logs, maybe because when I restart vsphere the logs are cleared?
