I am having issue on my one of the esx host 3.5.0. When i rebooted it today the host status is shonw not responding on VI. Checked it from hosts's console it stayed on "Restoring S/W ISCSI VOLUMS" and doing nothing. I am waiting for almost 3 hour now but the process is not completed yet. the server is Dell 2950. any suggestion appreciated.
Try to restart he mgmt service via console on the ESX host!
thanks for your quick reply but that didnt work. it only brings the login page thats all. still the same issue there.

Have you made changes on your ISCSI Storage.
It seems that it has Problem to get it.
Have you tried to reboot the host once again?
there hasnt been any changes on iscsi side, in fact the esx server was rebooted 2 weeks before arter the update and it was fine.
this ESX connected to an external storage?
are you having other ESX which also connected to this storage? the problem only exist on one ESX?
