so recently I was on the phone to Vmware. They asked me to Vmotion all of the VM's from this particular host, onto the other three we have in the cluster. I did. They then asked me to reboot the Esxi physical host. I did. But then...it never came back up. I.e. when I look at the screen, it is constantly going through a loop. It goes through the startup stages, but then it gets stuck in this loop which I've attached a photo.
It's trying to use PXE at boot? I've checked in BIOS and the primary boot is CD room. Last is PXE.
I ran harware diagnostics and sent to IBM (makers of our hosts/SAN environment). They said there's nothing wrong there.
So they asked me to do firmware updates. I've run them, but it takes forever.
However, in the morning I'm hoping it's come back up.
Otherwise, what's the next step? Re-install the OS? If so, do you have any steps I can go through?
The make model of this host is X3650 M3. We're using Vmware Esxi 4.1.0.
Thanks for your help
