Unable to connect to the MKS: Virtual machine config file does not exist

I am having problems when connecting to our VMs which is mounted on iSCSI partition on a NAS. When I attempt to console, it says “Unable to connect to the MKS: Virtual machine config file does not exist…” The NAS is an Iomega ix4-200r which is mounted on an IBM HS21 blade on iSCSI.

When I attempt to browse the datastore it’s completely empty. It’s as if, there’s no data in the store at all. This problem will resolve once I reboot the host or NAS. This error occurs once every fortnight or so.

When I do SNMP to the NAS the traffic is in 10s of Mbps/s and its a 1GB port on both the NAS and host. So connection between the host and NAS is unlikely the issue. Besides the host and NAS are on the same segment.

I appreciate any comments or if you could share your experience on this.

Many thanks

Did you ever resolve this?

This issue has come up again and again for me on NAS units which are iSCSI capable. I am not sure why but here is something which might help:

Good luck.
