i am trying to add a 100gig hdd as a RAW LUN to a server that runs on our development esxi box.
the 100gig hdd has been created in our EVA and presented directly to the esxi box
i did a rescan all and it found the new lun.
i then proceed to add a new hdd as normal, i select raw lun mapping
and follow all the steps, when i click ok i get the following error
Reconfigure virtual machine SERVER A general system error occurred: Failed to create journal file provider: Failed to open "/var/log/vmware/journal/1378689-776.25" for write: No such file or directory domain\username 09/09/2013 11:22:17 AM 09/09/2013 11:22:17 AM 09/09/2013 11:22:17 AM
i have read the following article from vmware
but it doesnt really help me out that much, i have checked the locations mentioned in the article and there is nothing in there.. plenty of space on the virtual centre server
5.3 gig available and nothing in the Journals location.
i logged onto the esxi host directly with putty and i ran the commands to check available space, and it looks like there is plenty there...
our esxi build is 5.0.0, 623860
im not sure where to go from here or how to resolove this, has anybody else experienced something like this?
