  • About esx logs

    Hi everyone,

    I have couple of questions,

    Our customer has 2 hp dl380 g6 servers.I had installed esx 4.0 to servers.One of the servers (hp dl 380 g6 -esx 4.0 installed) started rebooting unexpectedly (both of them new server) then hp replaced other server's mainboard and its ok now. But for the other server our customer said "we could not reach to server (virtual machines and esx server ) esx server is running but there was some red writes on the screen initializing blah blah. ) they didnt take note of error. when i view log files of esx i see something like "

    VMware releases patches on a somewhat regular basis, about one release every 6 weeks or so. Do you use VMware Update Manager?

    A bootable HP firmware CD (.iso) can be downloaded from HP's site. It's part of the Proliant Essentials media (formerly named Smart Start)

    Aborts are issued when a previous disk I/O command fails. It goes without saying, Aborts are not good to see.
