  • 1.  Cannot access ESXi server

    Posted Jul 31, 2010 03:55 PM

    It appears that my ESX server has crashed

    I can not longer use the VClient

    I can not get on the server using the Console

    I can ping the server

    The F2 TSM gave me a weird prompt

    This has been running for 3 days - new install

    The console displays a continuous message of

    sd 0.0.0.0 still retrying after 360s

    Thoughts or ideas

    It appears that the ESXi host has lost connection to some storage device, if possible run a complete hardware diags to ensure that the hardware connected is fine.

    What version of ESX/ESXi is installed. You have mentioned about using TSM so I presume its ESXi you can try a repair install if its an issue with ESXi.

    I am running ESX 4.1 build 260245, not ESXi

    Had to power off the server in order to force a restart off the CD

    I ran diagnostics on the HW and all passed

    I did a esxcfg-boot --rebuild and restarted the machine

    Do not know if the original issue.
