the only thing that changes is the ticket numbers.

Seems to be, there are other similar entries with success, but far more failures than successes.

Its not just a few either, its several.
Despite my googles I cant find much on that error at all.
Is it happening on all host or just one? What build of ESXi4.1 are you running?

Yes all hosts have this message but not all of them are in a failed state.

VMware 4.1

I think if you dig deep enough in VMware Logs, you'll find all sorts of errors and issues....

but if everything has been tested and working......?

Andrew yes your absolutely right, but which ones do you investigate?

I have other techs that bring errors to me all the time, 90% of them are moot.

Just understanding what some of them are so I can rule them out is half the battle.

So if its not reported in vcenter we should not worry about it as much?
Takes a lot of time to google some of them. Without resolution

We currently have 283 outstanding faults with VMware vSphere! (that can be reproduced!)

We do not go through the kernel logs, escalating ALL errors, *UNLESS* there is a fault, that can be seen and reproduced in vCenter Server/ESXi. (we have too much on, to do this!!).

and then logs are processed and reviewed.

There is a lot of internal chatter between hosts/vCenter Server, which is noise!

So, unless you have a reproducible fault, I would go looking in the logs, trying to find a fault...

That makes sense for sure, I do have an error that I am working on with a loss in volumes.
I am now trying to reproduce it like you said, if we can reproduce it we can fix it :)

The one in this thread I think is moot, and I am going to award you the points on it because I feel your 100% right.
If we cant reproduce it, or its something that is rearing its ugly head regularly, then I dont have time to look into all 282 faults! hehe.

We managed many many hosts at the DC, all logs come into a central Splunk database from all Hosts, and you would be surprised of the amount of chatter, and errors that appear, that appear to be moot!
