I have a ESX blade in a HP enclosure. It stopeed talking to VCenter to the point I could only access it from the physical console.
i rebooted the ESX blade & it took about 25 minutes to shutdown, it came back up quick.
Any tips on finding the root cause?
Looking at /var/log/messages I see a lot of:
syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
once an hour up until i rebooted, then they stopped.
