Its a mass storage device,s for scsci, d for device and l for the number (a being the first).

Looks like a VMFS is unavailable to the Kernel.

esxcfg-vmhbadevs to examine.

Is this on a freshly installed system or something you've gotten on a running one?

vmhba0:0:0     /dev/sda

vmhba1:0:1     /dev/sdb

vmhba1:0:2     /dev/sdc

vmhba1:0:3     /dev/sdd

vmhba1:0:4     /dev/sde

vmhba1:0:5     /dev/sdf

vmhba1:0:6     /dev/sdg

vmhba1:0:7     /dev/sdh

vmhba1:0:8     /dev/sdi

Identify the LUN Disk and Partition

vmhbax:y:z:v  

x=Hostbusadapter (0=mostly internal SCSI Adapter, 1=mostliy fibrechannel 1...x)
y=LUN
z=Disk
v=Partition

http://www.esxguide.com/esx/content/view/20/25/

so it would appear that a disk or LUN has dropped off, probably gone faulty and that could be where the swap part is..

For the Kernel to recognise the device, it will need to see it on boot, so check your Machine configuration and especially the Controllers/Disks.
