I am having trouble remediating a host (a node in a vSAN cluster) running on 6.0.0, 5572656 (ESXi 6.0 Update 3a) with some updates but upon reboot ESXI fails to load with:
Error Loading /s.v00
Fatal error: 33 (inconsistent data)
If I do a cold reboot, the host successfully boots back into the hypervisor but the updates have not been applied.
I also got an error earlier today on this host:
The host returns esxupdate error code:15 (This seemed to sort itselft out)
I have a ticket with VMWare but it’s been open over a week and they haven’t been particularly helpful so far.
If I run: cd /vmfs/volumes
find / -name locker
The command takes ages and then eventually returns the image below
Navigating through the directories - ls /locker/packages/6.0.0/floppies
It seems to loop back to the locker folder contents. It looks like some weird symbolic link issue but I really don’t know how to fix it or if im on the right lines.
The host and VMS otherwise run perfectly and I don’t have any other issues. I have run df -h and there is plenty of disk space. Any help would be massively appreciated!
