Hi,

Please choose "High Performance" as power management policy in your ESXi as a test.

Also share more details about your server and share your log files.

Hey, thanks for the help!

I had enabled "High Performance", this message appears alatoriamente whenever restart the host.

I'm Lenovo ThinkServer TD350 with two servers with the same problem.

Already installed the version 5.5 u3 and the problem is similar, it will be something with the bios?

Hi Bruno,

I have similar problems with Lenovo Thinkserve RD450.

Did you solve the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Could you kindly run a hardware diagnostic check on the server and involve the vendor to isolate the issue?

Diagnostic tool fully passed and no hardware error was detected.

After setting power managment to performance, server is running without crash.

I will update this thread next days.
