    vmware 5.5 u1 - iScsi adapter crashes the system

    M.Meuwese Novice

      Hello all,

       

      Last week i have not been successful in upgrading the VMware environment from 5.5 to 5.5U1. Initial installation went fine, configured the first ESXi host and created a host profile. So far so good, no major issues. When installing the remainder of the 5 other blade servers and applying the host profile all seems to be working well whereas things went sideways when the entire environment was shutdown and restarted.

       

      Te setup looks as following:

       

      Dell 1955 blade center servers (6x)

      Cisco 3030 switches connected to the blades

      vCenter server as a VM on the ESXi cluster

      vCenter upgrade manager as a VM

      Distributed Virtual Switch configured

       

      During the shutdown procedure i move all the vCenter components to a single host before powering down the vCenter server (Windows 2008). Then i shutdown the ESXi host using the management client as vCenter is no longer available.

       

      Power up cycle is to start this ESXi host first, connect to it and then powerup the vCenter components. Once all is running DRS and Power management is configured to automatic after which the simulation VM's are started.

       

      With 5.5 all was working well and no issues at all. When i installed 5.5 U1 i could no longer connect to the ESXi server and it gave an error 503 when connecting to it. Going through the log files showed that components on the file system could not be found after which i decided to do a clean install.

       

      After reinstalling the whole lot i connected to a ESXi host and enabled the network and added the iScsi adapter. At that stage the system becomes unresponsive and the session between the ESXi host and the client is disconnected.

       

      Running several tests i concluded that something must be wrong with the virtual disk system components, iScsi or vSan. 5 of the 6 hosts will be rolled back to vmware 5.5 as vmware 5.5U1 is not stable...

       

      Can use some help troubleshooting this issue as i will leave 1 server in the current state it is to identify the root cause as i'm stuck at the moment. Later on i will post some log file sections with the errors i identified. (Restarting the hostd does not resolve the problem)

       

      Regards,

          Actions that cause the VMware 5.5u1 to stop functioning:

           

          1. Login to the vSphere client

          ESXi5_5u1_crash_001.jpg

          2. Enable iScsi

          ESXi5_5u1_crash_003.jpg

          ESXi5_5u1_crash_004.jpg

          Now the system is stuck and will no longer respond to any commands, even from the server console pressing f2 or f12 will yield no result. It is completely stuck. Only a reboot can revive the system....

          Connecting to the console is back online though the vSphere client can't connect and throws an error 'An unknown connection error occurred. (The server could not interpret the client's request. (the remote server returned an error: (503) Server Unavailable.))

                      Hi Martin,

                       

                      Could you please check the hardware compatibility list. I could not see Dell 1955 blade center server support in 5.5U1 HCL.

                        Will do. Probably now time to start replacing it.

                          Today i received a reply that the 1955 DELL Blade servers are no longer in the HCL which could be the cause for the issues to surface. I will close this thread as it is running on non-supported hardware and revert back to 5.5 1331820 as this has been running stable for a long time.

                            Hello,

                             

                            I don't think this problem is related to hardware. I'm seeing the exact same hostd crash caused by sw-iSCSI on ESXi 5.5U1 and this is with supported (on-HCL) hardware.

                             

                            Any ideas how to fix this?

                              More information.. to reproduce:

                               

                              1) Install ESXi 5.5 U1 host.

                              2) Verify you can connect to the host with vSphere Client.

                              3) ssh into the host and run "esxcli iscsi software set --enabled=true". Or enable sw-iSCSI client using the vSphere Client.

                              4) Reboot the ESXi host.

                              5) Notice you can't connect to the host with vSphere Client anymore.

                              6) ssh into the host and check the process list with "ps". You'll notice "hostd" is not there. "hostd" now crashes on every ESXi host reboot.

                                Ok, so it looks the hostd iscsi crash only happens when installing the ESXi 5.5u1 host from "VMware-ESXi-5.5U1-RollupISO.iso".

                                If I install the host from "VMware-VMvisor-Installer-5.5.0.update01-1623387.x86_64.iso" then iscsi seems to work OK!

                                 

                                I wonder what's wrong with the RollupISO ..

                                  I Will verify tomorrow and post my findings once done. Let's hope it is that simple...

                                    I just wanted to throw this out here, I had the same issue in my lab, older unsupported hardware also. The rollup iso caused the same issue with an iscsi crash for me, and the the version  mentioned by user pasikappext works for me. "VMware-VMvisor-Installer-5.5.0.update01-1623387.x86_64.iso
