I'd log a case with vmware support.  Just a thought, is the storage servicing your vCentre swamped?

Hooo yeah... lot of strange stuff...

To define scope :

One cluster HA/DRS with 6 nodes, 14*700GB DS, 98 VM

One datastore has on 340MB free... on 700GB, but status is "normal"... Okaaaayyy..

I've started a global vcheckv505+, it returns free space problem (fortunately!).

On this cluster we've a pb on a datastore which has been corrupt, and we cannot remove it on 2 ESX... we need to reboot, but timeline not still defined (ressource are too short too migrate vm on other ESX...)

Some path failed... but not much considering number of links...

Disk latency : high on 2 ESX (concerning DS which cannot be removed without reboot...)

small on some others esx (53Ms on 30 defined)

2 vm ballonning... we'll correct that.

Concerning this DS with 350MB free, i've moved a VM : display value was actualized, so i'll migrate VM to have a preconised free space... but i don't know why triggering doesn't alerting... (configuration of triggerring is correctly defined on VC)

Needs others specific information to answer your doubt? Smiley Happy

Some specific logs ?

command to test?

Thanks for your hlp Smiley Happy

Vcenter is on a standalone server...

Hi

Was your vCenter build from scrach or you did upgrade to 4.1 ? I had similar problem but with historical data not with realtime.

Does error appears on all hosts in your cluster ?

Where is vCenter DB located, is it on this same server where vCenter is installed or remote DB ?

What version of DB engine is used for vCenter DB ?

Cheers

Hi,

Vsphere has been installed from scratch... no update.

Problem appears on different nodes... but not at the same frequence...

Vcenter DB is located on another SQL server... SQL 2005 I think...  (SQL Native client 2005.90.30.42.00)

Hi,

That's odd, looks like a problem between ESXi hosts and vCetner.

have tryide restart mgmt services on hosts ?

Have you tried disconnect and connect host again - to renew vpxd configuration ? remove and add Host to vCetner inventory ?

check SQL performance itself

What are statisctics levels on your vCenter ?

Is there anything suspicious in vpxd*.log on vCenter server ?

Cheers
