    ESX unable to find root partition

    cttechnologies Lurker

      Hello,

       

      after a disk change of our RAID-5 array ESX 4.0 refuses to start. The error occurs in the script 69.mount-root:

       

      The root partition specified (UUID=...) was not found on COS VMDK that specified (/vmfs/volumes/.../esxconsole-.../esxconsole.vmdk).

       

      Trying to change the UUID in the kernel boot line didn't help.

       

      Any ideas?

       

      Thank you in advance and best regards,
