ESX time out with SAN
Posted on 2007-11-27
We have 2 ESX servers connect to Dell SAN, this Dell SAN have been cut to 2 parts: Target 0 and Target 1. Both ESX servers connect to 2 SAN target via Fibre Channel.
Previously only ESX-2 turn off because of no license. We just bought new license for ESX-2. Some how ESX-2 is very slow communicate with SAN, I can not create virtual machine on it, even thought I can create virtual machine on the local disk of ESX-2.
Every time I select any Target on ESX-2, I got errors: "Timed out waiting for server response." and "Object reference not set to an instance of an object.". I wish I can post the picture of it in here, but I could not find any option to post it.
I just have been asked for take care of this problem. I am newbie, I donÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™t know where to start trouble should on this, can anyone help me out.
