Unable to See/Access local drive data store after upgrading esxi 4.1 to 5.1 on HS22 BLADE
Posted on 2014-02-13
Recently upgraded some of my host 4.1 to 5.1 (running on HS22-7870 blades),
but after 2-3 days what i observed -unable to see local data store/logical drive on host
Checked with Vmware said- to check with hardware vendor
and h/w vendor said all hardware part is ok.
Finally i used firmware /bios image to upgrade firmware bios for IBM HS 22 7870 [earlier it was 1.11 and after upgrade firmware was 1.21]
and i found everything was up n fine after firmware upgrade
so just to confirm with experts..is it the valid approach , as none vmware/h/w vendor supported here, so decided to upgrade firmware on server?
will there be any issue/risk with h/w part after upgrading firmware bios on server?
bcoz now my server is up and fine and m able to access my local drive as well
but has to advice business to go ahead in same way for other boxes we have to upgrade and upgrade earlier.
