Hi

Has anybody faced anything similar about the warnings attached? Unfortunately the server is in a remote location and i cannot access it physically. The server rebooted with core dumb ESX screen. The server is a Lenovo x3650 M5.

Shall i assume that the warnings have to do with the raid controller card? I cant find anything related in the internet.

Thanks

Is it possible to see what the errors actually are. If you can click the arrow and expand the message text that might shed some light on a very ambiguous request.

A error on a raid controller could mean the controller is faulty, say flat cache battery.
A error with a disk. say your raid array is degraded

very very ambiguous.

You need to look at the diagnostics on the server, and maybe configure IMM as per this link

PSOD are generally caused by failed hardware, outdated firmware, we would recommend checking and upgrading all firmwares.
