    why?: Lost access to volume due to connectivity issues. Recovery attempt is in progress and outcome will be reported shortly.

    ManiacMark Novice

      I recently did a fresh install of ESXi 6.0.0 2494585 essentials on my HP DL380G7 using the HP image.

      I am using LOCAL SAS drives as my Raid5 datastore.

      Everything appears to be configured as normal.

      With no guests installed I was seeing this event message appear many times throughout the day.  I setup 1 guest vm (windows server 2008 R2) and I still see these "lost access" events occurring throughout the day.

       

      The exact events are:

      Lost access to volume 56248aa8-e7b72dd9-14fa-d48564790096 (DataStore1Raid5) due to connectivity issues. Recovery attempt is in progress and outcome will be reported shortly.  2015-12-02 11:44:37 PM

        and then I immediately get a success

      Successfully restored access to volume 56248aa8-e7b72dd9-14fa-d48564790096 (DataStore1Raid5) following connectivity issues.  2015-12-02 11:44:37 PM

       

      The raid is made up of 8 local sas drives with 1GB battery/capacitor-backed cache card and p410i controller.  Health status indicates all drives in the raid are healthy. The entire system is showing as healthy.

       

      ESXi is running from attached USB stick.

      Scratch folder is located on local raid datastore.

       

      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve or troubleshoot this?  Or which logs may point to anything to help solve this?  Maybe just a bug in ESXi 6.0.0?

      Thanks.
