i have got a big problem because i decided, yesterday, to reinstalling Esx 3.5 u4 latest version on my dell 2950 rack server.
The setup completes successfully, then, when entering with the VI Client, i deleted the default storage made by the installion process and then i recreated it back from the VI Client in order to make the alignment (as suggested from vmware).
After recreating it i have, into the consolle, lots of error such as:
ext3-fs error (device sd(8,6) in start_transaction: journal has aborted
The SAS drives are ok (all checked and reinitialized lots of times) and all firmware were updated.
It seems the problem start when deleting and recreating back the partition from the VI Client.
