Is that error in host OS or guest?
The warnings are on the Guest OS.
Hmm... In Windows 2003 it was LSILogic 1.10.05.00 driver. Worked without any problems.
Windows 2008 is not supported as a guest in VMware Server 1.0x. Maybe this is why.
I guess I will move to Hyper-V then.
I would explore that path.
Seeing similar issue with 2 VM's running Windows 2008 R2 x64 with versions 188.8.131.52 of the "LSI Adapter, Ultra320 CSI 2000 series, w/1020/1030". Regular repeats of event id 129 with error "Reset to device, \Device\RaidPort0, was issued". Did you find a solution in the end?
I'm also seeing the same errors in Windows 2008 R2 event log. LSI Adapter, SAS 3000 series, 8-port with 1068, driver version 184.108.40.206. I was getting the same errors when I had pvsci controller selected in ESXi (build 256968) for this VM and I was hoping that changing controller fix my problem but it didn't. Any idea what could be happening? Other VM are not reporting this problem.
Our particular issues came back to underlying issues with the SAN, as a temporary workaround we moved the affected VM's to local disk until the SAN issues were resolved.
DId you find the reason?
I posted this yesterday:
We are having some issues with a virtual environment.
Atleast once a day we get error msgs on our virutal servers and on our LUNs in vCenter.
Info msg in vCenter is:
Datastore LUNX increased in capacity from 0 bytes to xxxxxxxxx bytes 13:34
And it does this as I said one or more times per day. At the same time on our virtual machines that are connected to that server we get:
Log Name: System
Date: 2010-10-27 13:33:33
Event ID: 129
Task Category: None
Reset to device, \Device\RaidPort0, was issued.
We also get LSI_SAS on newer servers with newer Controllers.
The problem is that it hangs the server for a few short seconds, and this makes all applications that have connections to databases break and they need to be restarted.. our customers doesn like this at all as you can imagine.
We have two QNap RP-809U NAS servers using NFS towards Vmware vSphere4 and each server has two LUNs and this happends on both LUNs at the same time, so it seems to have something to do with the NAS. I guess the connection goes down for a few second for some reason and then reconnects.
Has anyone been had this problem before and have any suggestions? Its at random times:
etc etc.. alot more on this one.
same as above
I'm experiencing the same issues with my Server 2008 VM's. I'm running ESX 4.0.1 on HP Proliant Blades with an EMC NS-120 Celerra SAN for storage. How do I determine that this is a SAN issue? I'm not getting any unusual errors or warnings within the webmin page or Navisphere, so I'm a little lost on where to go from here. Any help wold be beneficial. Thanks
My issue ended up being a bad fibre cable between my fibre switches and the SAN. The SAN had trespassed my LUN's to SPB, which caused the flagged error listed above.
There is issue with the SAS drivers installed. This needs to be upgrade with latest drivers to fix the issue.
