HP Proliant DL160 G6 running Vmware Esxi 5.5.0 boots to purple screen repetitively

Our HP Proliant DL160 G6 was upgraded about a month or two from Vmware Esxi 4 up to 5.5.0 and since then has crashed 3 or 4 times  but each time I could recover simply by rebooting.  Well, this time a reboot isn't doing it!!  I found two upgrades to the BIOS on HP's website and applied them to no avail, same purple screen on  boot.  Unfortunately I am not that familiar with Vmware - our main guy is out of town so we are up a crick without a paddle so to speak.  Anyone have any ideas? 

 

thanks in advance.   Oh yeah, it's one month fresh out of warranty also!  Peachy, huh?

Hi,

 

Did you find any soulution ? The same problem we have. So we have  DL160 G6 servers located on Branch offices. In this week 3 DL160 G6 Esxi 5.5 installed server stopped working, we reboted them then they worked. If you find a solution can you please share with us?

 

Thanks, regards...

Hi all,

as you can see on:http://h17007.www1.hp.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/supportmatrix/vmware.aspx#.VBxUEnNwbqB

This server supports ESXi 5.1 however on http://h17007.www1.hp.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/supportmatrix/vmware.aspx#.VBxUcHNwbqC

It is not listed as supportes for ESXi 5.5.

It's most likely that this is causing the issues.

I suggest check if ESXi 5.1 works properly.

Cheers, Rob

Hello,

Disable PCC option on RBSU and vCenter.
