ESXI 5.1 CRASH

Hello,

 

This is my first post in this forum, sorry if my english is not very good.

 

I have a ESXI 5.1 server (HP SE316M1/DL 160 G6) with 3 virtual machines, it has been working perfectly for more than a month. Server has 16GB RAM, 14GB for the machines and 2 GB left for the host.

 

Since last Friday I got 3 issues where virtual machines where unresponsive (although they appear as running on host), host was working and I was able to manage it through SSH and client.

 

After a reboot all is running correctly.

 

This has happened 3 times in last 4 days.

 

No hardware issues are found in ESXi report.

 

No RAID controller or drives issues found in hpacucli report (my controller is HP Smart Array P410).

 

I checked vmkwarning.log and found these lines at the time of last incident:

What would explain that host works perfectly and all 3 machines stopped responding at same time? they appear as running on host panel. If it was a hardware issue (memory, processor, disk...) then host would hangs too, right?.

 

Can you shed any light on this?, this is a production server so I´m very worried.

Regards.

Right.If it was a hardware issue (memory, processor, disk...) then host would hangs too.Did you check the VM guest OS event logs?

Re: ESXI 5.1 CRASH

OK, how about try to apply the latest firmware from HP SPP 2015.06 and then update the ESXi 5.1 to the latest Update 3 ?

 

I've done this ti rectify the PSoD on my HP servers most of the time.
