Thanks for moving it to correct forum.

Re: B140i raid controller driver spamming vmkernel logs

that is really shame, no one replying from HPE?

This is a serious problem and I saw at least 3 friends having this issue. No one has answer?

This is a peer to peer forum, not an official HPE support site.
Have you tried contacting the HPESC?

Re: B140i raid controller driver spamming vmkernel logs

I already opened an SR and they said use grep to find what you are looking for... This is unacceptable.

Go to VMware forums and you can find lots of folks from VMware replying guys and taking actions..

Nevermind. I'll change the hosts with a different vendor.
