HELP please save me: error 10 (out of resources)

Jump to solution

I had a disk fail on my esxi 6.5 with raid 6.

Rebuilt array and now getting this error on Dell r710.

 

Getting error loading /imgdb.tgz

Compressed MD5: 00000000000000000000000

Decompressed MD5: 00000000000000000000000000000

Fatal error: 10 (out of resources)

 

 

Is there a way to ideally repair esxi to boot?

Okay, solved sorta;

 

How:

- created a bootable 6.5 usb iso installer

- couldnt upgrade and perserve datastore (got same error missing file)

- tried install and preserve - but asked to re partition (scared me off that idea... as I have data on partition and partition is full disk size)

- so instead installed onto another usb

- booted successfully - and could browse to datastore and click on vmx and add as VM.

- I had custom names for nic groups - so made sure that was the same as before (comes up with a warning)

- I had to edit each vm and update network card to above named nic.

started each vm and magic it worked!

 

Hope me writing this helps someone else.

lesson for future - create partition on a drive or array just for vmware - so if this happens again you can just wipe partition and start vmware from scratch again without having to worry about datastores.

usb vmware for me for now - until I rebuild from scratch. gah.

 

Thanks.

HI @VanadiumJade 

Could you please try this kb: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2076105 

You may have to consider to turn your bios in legacy mode for the operation
