Hi Techies,

Need your urgent help. Today morning when i tried to booted some of the vms in my environment its fails with the below error.

My environment is : vcenter 5.5 with Esxi host 5.5

Also i tried with migrating this server to another host. its migrated successfully.. but when i powered it on its again failed with the same error and again vm went back to the same host where it was before migrating.

Anyone seen this issue. ?

Also i tried to search it out over KB i found this. VMware KB: ESXi/ESX host reports VMFS heap warnings when hosting virtual machines that collectively ...

Didnt tried this yet as i am not sure if its the correct resolution for this issue.

Anything apart from this i can look.

Thanks.

Hi,

Anjani_Kumar, Have you been able to solve this?

I'm also having this issue with my ESXi 5.5.0 3116895 on "7870D3A IBM BladeCenter H22"@

rescanning the storage on the affected esxi host will solve the issue.
