We can't update ESXI to 6.7 either, because we still have old HP Gen8 servers in the cluster. I have now updated the vCenter to 220.127.116.1100 and the hosts to ESXi 6.5.0 10719125. The problem persists. This is not a satisfactory way to deal with customers...

i have updated one of our server, which had the problem, to the newest version of VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 10884925, and the error is gone noe. So it seems Vmware has fixed the defect.
Installing latest patches solve Hardware Status alert on HP Proliant DL360 Gen9 + VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 10884925
I updated my hosts as well, most of the sensors have recovered/cleared except for 3 (Running on Dell R630):
Add-in Card 3 SD2 0 --- 0.11.3.245: unknown
Add-in Card 3 SD1 0 --- 0.11.3.244: unknown
System Board 1 Power Optimized 0 --- 0.7.1.118: unknown
Still the error on HP ML350 Gen10 VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 10884925 ...
Now, after 8 months, the error is finally gone with esxi 6.5.0, 10884925 (on HP DL380p Gen 8). I found this info in the release notes:
PR 2088424: You might see false hardware health alarms due to disabled or idle Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) sensors
This issue is resolved in this release. This fix filters out such alarms.
Thanks for this hard piece of work VMWare
I´ve got the same issue but with all our ML110 Gen10 with ESXi 6.7 latest Hotfix ( 6.7.0 13981272 ) installed with "HPE-ESXi-6.7.0-Update2-iso-Gen9plus-670.U18.104.22.168.8".
iLO says everything is fine but for all 12 Servers vCenter says Alarm: Host hardware fan status and the Hardware Healt shows Warning for Cooling Unit 1 Fans with Event Log "Assert + Fan Redundancy Lost" ...
Is this the same issue?
Please help ...
I was just looking up the same issue. - I have exactly the same problem and have ML110 Gen10's running ESXi 6.7 - 13006603
Can't see any issue in ILO or OneView just on the Host & vCenter "Host hardware fan status" "Cooling Unit 1 Fans - Warning - 0 "
Does anyone know a way to fix this? - ILO version 1.43 May 23 2019 (latest)
If you can, do the following things :
1) Update your server with the Service Pack For ProLiant from HPE (i used the 2019.03.1 and it works)
2) Update your ESXi 6.7 to the build 13981272 (aka ESXi670-201906002)
Let me know if you still encounter issues
Hi GaelV ,
quick reply on this ... it did not help fixing my issue.
I´ve downloaded the ServicePack and did an auto apply to the server ( it only updated the system rom to the latest version, all other parts seemed to be up to date ), did a reset of the alarm in the vCenter but they are showing up again ... Alarm: Host hardware fan status ... It it Hardware Health, ID 0.30.1.49 - Cooling Unit 1 Fans - Warning - Assert + Fan Redundancy lost.
Any other idea how to get a good sleep at night again?
Weird, i did it with Interactive Mode, something there's differences with Automatic mode.
I've just find out the mail that vmware support send me to completely resolve the issue, it works for me but i don't know if it could works for everyone, so i won't be responsible if the following cli affects your server, software or anything.
As a reminder, i had the issue with HP ML350 Gen10 with ESXi 6.5 Update 2.
The support told me :
1) Update the server with the SPP [done]
2) Update the ESXi to Update 3
3) Finally, put this cli in ssh : "localcli hardware ipmi sdr list |grep "Cooling Unit 1 Fans " && esxcfg-advcfg -s 49 /UserVars/HardwareHealthIgnoredSensors"
5) Everything's work fine.
I repeat, it works for me because the vmware support told me to do this, maybe if the warning is about different devices, it won't work for you.
Let me know
