I keep randomly getting this error message when performing almost any operation requiring accessing my shared storage (creating VMs, starting VMs, installing hosts, etc). The SR is set up to connect via iSCSI to a volume on my NexSAN SATABeast. Anyone have any clues how to resolve this?

The problem was related to DNS/routing settings on one of my hosts...which is why the error only appeared sometimes, when that particular server was attempting to do the provisioning.
