  • VMware ESXi 5.1 + VM's not responding and getting hung frequently

    Hello VMware Admins,

    This is my first post for an issue that have faced recently, after upgrading our VMware farm from VMware ESXi 4.1 to 5.1 in a HP DL 380P Gen 8 Hardware, most of the Virtual Machines were frequently getting Hung and also the VMware Tools were not running often.
    First of all the VMVisior was not detecting the HP Hardware, then i have used HP customized ISO to build the OS and it went well.
    After which i have updated all the VM's to H/W version 9 and also updated the VMtools..

    But Many VM's are not responding and tools were not running.Then after some Googling and VMware Forums, i found its a bug in ESXi 5.1 and then i have updated the Patches and found 4 new patches missing and updated them as well...even after that the VM tools were frequently chaning to Not running state causing the VM's to get Hung.

    My Current ESXi Version After Patching : ESXi 5.1.0 , 914609 ( 20/12/2012) - HP Customized
    Version While Building : ESXi 5.1.0, 799733 ( Oct 2012) - HP Customized.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Murali M
