What you see is a PSOD (Purple Screen of diagnostics) which is comparable to a blue screen in Windows. It occurs if the OS cannot handle a specific situation.
Such issues are often related to either faulted, or unsupported hardware. Please explain what hardware (system, vendor, controllers, ...) you are using.
Does the PSOD re-occur after restarting the ESXi host?
This is quite an old version that you are using (6.5U1). can you upgrade to a more recent one?
What is your priority ?
- fix the failing ESXi-system ? - you maybe able to read the VMs again when you solved this first.
- read and extract the VMs asap so that you can use them elsewhere.
If it is the first search for the PSOD-message and go from there.
If it is the second boot the ESXi host with a Linux-LiveCD and report results when that works.
I can give you detailed advice but first need to know if you are able to detect any partition formatted with VMFS at all.
Thanks you Mr Ulli,
i think i should go the second way firstly, after that i will go the first one in case the first one may become worse...
can you guide to upgrade new one thanks
