I have a vmware ESX server that stopped responding this morning. When we rebooted it, it still did not respond to the virtual center server or to pings. I ILOed into the remote console and see a red screen with Illegal OpCode at the top and a bunch of hex codes. Does anyone have any idea how to resolve this? (I can reinstall ESX if that's the only solution, but I have to do it over the wire as the server is 500 miles from me).
The hex codes are :
EAX=00000000 EBX=00007000 ECX=00646165 EDX=00000080
EBP=000004E3 ESI=00007C05 EDI=0000FBF1
DS=0000 ES=0800 FS=0000 GS=0003
By the way, a lot more people with the same problem. Do you have the latest updates (bios?).
