Anyone getting same error ?
To give more informations, we use Broadcom NC382i Multi Port PXI Express with BNX2 driver on vSwitch.
Thanks for your help,
If NIC fails of malfunction..It leads to ESXi unresponsive..I gone thru such instance in my production environment last week.
It won't let ssh or login thru DCUI. I shutdown all the VMs (running in memory) gracefully and reboot the host. surprisingly the NIC showing Red cross sign over it in VC disappear.
CPU error on Purple screen is nothing to do with this.
Thanks for your reply.
Yes it is totally true.
Our ESX was unacessible until we fixed the port on switch doing broadcast storm and rebooted our ESX, everything went fine.
My question is, how can we prevent this type of crash ? Is there anything to do in ESX configurations or switch configuration to prevent this type of crash ?
And how can you explain that our fan's ESX were working hard (lot of noise and fan at 100%) and our power supply had no green LED (like if there were no electricity in it) behind our ESX ?
It was so weird that we were complety lost on this crash... We first thought at an electric trouble and finally find that it was a local network loop doing broadcast storm on the building which was crashing our hosts...
Any advice is welcome or explanation on this crash
Up guys please, we really need to understand this strange behavior.
