VMWare Server 2.x rudeunplug:operation on file - happening again
Posted on 2010-08-14
Host: Windows 2003 32-bit enterprise
guests: (6) windows 2003 32bit
storage: local SAS disks in the host - not shared, not SAN
Every couple of days I get the above mentioned error on only ONE of the guests. The guest stops and I have to select Continue from the vmware server console.
I've run chkdsk on the guest disks (it has 2 vmdk's). and ghosted them to new vmdk files.
The guest gets a delyed write error or sometimes a bad block error in the event log.
The host gives me this in the app log (this is during the backup exec time)
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error WaitForMultipleObjects(1,00757FF8,1,120000) == 0x00000102. hr = 0x8000ffff.
