Followup: seems the issue mainly impacts linux style systems, with or without vmtools. Virtualized windows responds to keyboard / mouse inputs normally, no matter the browser. TooManyWrites errors is still recurring, even with a windows session. Not sure if it is related or not.
Hi to everyone
I don't know if mi issue is the same as above ....
I have an ESXi 6.7.2 running on an HP DL560 Gen9 Server with a Ubuntu VM.
The VM Console was working fine without any problems but now I can write to the console from the VM (via echo TEST > /dev/console)but I am unable to see the echo of what I type in the console using the keyboard, so I cannot use it anymore ...using ssh in order to connect to the VM is OK.
I have done some Network tuning but I have also tried to update from 6.7.2 to 6.7.3, but the process got an error (now I don't remember ...). The actual is still version 6.7.2.
I have tried to start another VM but the problem still persist (I have also reboot the Server and ESXi)
Any idea of the cause of this issue ?
Thanks in advance
EDIT I am using Chrome Web browser and the issue is present only in the console launched from the ESXi Web management. One of the things that I have changed is the switch from Firefox to Chrome... I will try to check with Firefox..
were you able to find a fix for this, I am seeing this behavior on all my Ubuntu VMs
