Hi

I had the purple screen of death when adding a new VM to the host earlier.  Error:
space 08/12 disk dump: partial dump: out of space.

I rebooted it and all is working.
Is there anything i should/can check?

Thanks

Upgrade this host, it's OLD. - Sept 2013....

there have been 21 UPDATES since that version, latest is Feb 2016, Build 3568722.

Come on, stick with the program "old timer!"

That's original GA version (first release).

and with any PSOD, it could be hardware related, firmware, memory, CPU, heatsinks, storage controller firmware, network firmware.

or unsupported VM, E1000, VMXNET3 issue.

You really need to be on the latest version, and then try again.

try this today, and get it updated, make sure in maintenance mode and VMs are OFF.

esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient
esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-5.5.0-20160204001-standard \ -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml
esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e false -r httpClient

off-topic, and nothing to do with PSOD.

and does this version still ask about 'moved' or 'copied' VMs?  In which case do i select copied?

again off-topic, please post a new question for the above.

your guide is for 5.1 to 5.5.  Assume the same process, or not?

In my post https:#a41732835

after posting a link to my EE Article, I've also typed!

(same method to upgrade 5.5 to 5.5 later patches, just change file names)

and I also give you the commands to update to the latest update, using the Web Update method.

You must have missed that line!
