VMware: ESX 4.0 down after update: fsck.ext3: unable to resolve ‘uuid

March 29th, 2010 7 comments

After upgrading the VMware ESX 4.0 host with VMware Update Manager I received in the boot loader a few errors:

fsc.ext3: Unable to resolve ‘UUID=xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx’
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.

To resolve this issue:


– Login with Root credentials

Error warnings:

fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve ‘UUID=7d6111a3-d848-4e18-88e3-46a66912f8e6’

fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve ‘UUID=b07fd5a0-4a19-445d-adae-3b3679b5be3b’
