    Host not booting beyond * mount-root, with error in relation to esxconsole.vmdk

      Hi, I have read a lot about errors like mine, but none of them has exactly the same error message, please see below.

      I have to shut down the host (HP ML350 G6) so sitewide power tests were carried out.

      The following day I switched on the host to hear one of the hard disks squeaking like a mouse and then Smart Array P401 error indicating one of my drives was faulty.

      The following day I replaced the drive and then rebooted and the array seemed to rebuild ok, but know I have this error.   Can anyone point me in a direction to resolve this please?

       

      Regards
