is this a new installation or existing?
This looks like something that might happen if the VM were abruptly powered off or restored to an unsafe snapshot state.

Power it off, take a clean snapshot, then reboot.

You should see the same thing that you showed us, since we haven't done anything to change the state.

Then just do what the instructions tell you to do: run fsck on the /var file system first (you may have to look in /etc/fstab to see what disk partition device name to use for fsck). If you don't know how to do this or how to interpret the results, get back to us with where you're getting stuck.

After that, we can figure out what's up with that failed swapspace initialization message.

its an existing application having vcenter server appliance
Yes, that looks like the command you'll need to run, though just fsck should be sufficient (the command can figure out the file system type for itself). In this system layout, it looks like /var is not a separate partition.

That swap allocation looks awfully large -- I read it as 16TB -- did someone miss by 3 orders of magnitude?
