After the filesystem issue on my VCSA v6.5, I suddenly unable to login to the server with the below error:
A server error occurred.
Unable to log in because you do not have permission on any vCenter Server systems connected to this client.
Check the vSphere Client server logs for details.
I can login using email@example.com
l but not anything with AD integrated account.
Here's the chronological order:
-- vCenter server down
-- not pingable.
-- Issues seen in the ESXi host which the vCenter VM is residing on :

st] Lost connectivity to storage device naa.6000eb3311ab55e3000000
. Path vmhba37:C0:T9:L0 is down. Affected datastores: "PRODSQL01_Backup"..
-- vCenter VM hangs in the black screen - where it goes into the single user mode.
-- The root filesystem has mismatching inodes.
Action taken :
To fix the issue we went ahead and cleaned the filesystem bad blocks.
executed the below commands :
1. Check the filesystems :
2. Run the e2fsck against the filesystem for root
3. Fix the inodes when asked for it
4. Once process completes, reboot the virtual machine.
