There were four VMs ( 3 Linux & 1 Windows ) found file system corruption and caused company's application failed in this month. In linux guest OS, I need use FSCK command to fix file system. And in Windows server I lost ntoskrnl.exe file and need to use chkdsk to fix file system. I have checked server and storage hardware, but there is nothing error found.

Anyone could give me some idea about this problem? We are running Dell poweredge server and  Huawei-Syamantec iSCSI storage.

I would check if the Huawei-Syamantec iSCSI storage is certified for use with VMware ESXi 5.0.

Check the VMware HCL (Hardware Compatability Lists) here

I have checked VMware HCL, Huawei-Symantec iSCSI storage is not in the list for ESXi 5.0. But it's in the list for ESXi 4.1.

My vmware hosts were running well in ESXi 4.1, but why they cannot run well in ESXi 5.0?

Check with vendor if there is an update to make them compatible with ESXi 5.0.

If its not certified and tested this could be the issue with corruption you have observed.
