IBM Blade server ESXi host hang after update to 5.0 update 3
Posted on 2014-01-22
recently I upgraded my esx 4.1 to esxi 5.0 update 3 on a IBM Blade server hs22 on bay1 and patch esxi 5 to update 3 on the other IBM blade server hs22 on bay 2 and 3. The VM is reside in the blade storage map to this blade.
After 3 days, the Esxi host 1 seems will hang. When login to vsphere client the VM will state unknown and the storage state inactive.
I have to manually shutdown the server and power it back. But after awhile the issue return.
Host 2 and Host 3 on blade server hs22 in bay 2 and 3 does not have any problem after esxi upgrade.
The blade server firmware version is on the attached file.
Do I need to update the firmware for blade server 1 to resolve this issue? I have never done the firmware update for IBM blade server before.
