One of the vmware hosts in my DR cluster failed yesterday - shows the following on screen:
cannot get bank 1 parameters
warning: bank 1 partition type invalid. ignoring
cannot get bank 2 parameters
warning: bank 2 partition type invalid. ignoring
Panic: No useable banks found
The only system change in the last 3 months othe rthan usual patch updates is that one HDD failed at the start of last week - hot spare took up the slack and the failed drive was replaced successfully. Can anyone shed any light on why the host should suddenly fail and give the above message?
Host affected is a Dell 2950 II running VMware Essentials 4.1, 6 x 146GB SAS (raid 5), 16GB ram, Xeon 1.6Ghz
