    What are these errors in "hostd.log"

    Jeffery Hawks Enthusiast

      Hi. We had a VM fail to power up for a user. It powered up on all subsquent tries. I am trying to determine why the cause was. The host it was on is good, as I test other VMs.

       

      I highlighted in Bold  the event that caused the VM to fail to power on. I have no idea what "screenshots" are. I see a lot of them for this VM. And I cant find any information on what it is. Also I cant get the user to tell me exactly what they were doing. They swear the VM was off. Which it looks like from the logs and the vCenter events. Can anyone give me any clues? This hasnt happened again, I just am curious if I have something that is going to bite me again.
