It appears that the ESXi host has lost connection to some storage device, if possible run a complete hardware diags to ensure that the hardware connected is fine.
What version of ESX/ESXi is installed. You have mentioned about using TSM so I presume its ESXi you can try a repair install if its an issue with ESXi.

I am running ESX 4.1 build 260245, not ESXi
Had to power off the server in order to force a restart off the CD
I ran diagnostics on the HW and all passed
I did a esxcfg-boot --rebuild and restarted the machine
Do not know if the original issue.
