What is the recommended procedure after VMFS problems ?
Assume you see a VMFS-volume with harmless I/O errors, with serious AIOMgr type 3 I/O errors or with VOMA reporting inconsistencies. Is that volume still trustworthy ?
At the moment I recommend to move all data out of the datastore as soon as possible. Then delete the VMFS-volume. After the volume is deleted use dd if=/dev/zero of=/vmfs/devices/disks/<disk in question> Then create new partitiontable and a new vmfs-volume.
In the last months I lost all trust in new VMFS-volumes that were created without wiping the LUN/Disk first.
What is the official recommended procedure in such a case ?
