One of our ESX servers has a temperature alert.

Any ideas what this means.  To the untrained eye it looks like it's a faulty sensor as I dont think it can be -20

Temperature Alert
Any suggestions?

What about posting ESXi version ?
Do you see same alert in iLO? Does it come back after you clear iLO logs?
To call hp support:
Update firmware: https://www.google.com/search?q=spp_2014.02.0 
Then run full insight diagnostics saving report on USB
Do you see same defect?
Yes - call HP
No - consult vmware hcl for recommended driver levels

Esx 5.1

I'll check the ilo log on Mondays I'm off work until then.

Nothing is in the ILO.

Does this suggest an issue within VMware?

It seems to be a bug in vmware and/or HP customisation agents
So you have vsphere update manager on vcenter to comfortably install all applicable updates?

I've logged a ticket with VMWare and waiting for them to get back to me.

It's the first time I've logged a ticket with them and I have to say they are pathetically slow.

You must install HP updates 2014-02 before asking HP
since you are at rebooting you may plan running ~hours of insight diags from same CD
And if those show anything you ask HP support
Once they say it is problem with vmware you should ask them.

Sorry for the delay.  The server isnt in the same location as me.  So in the interest of fairness I've closed the ticket.

many thanks
