VMware: ESXi 4.1 installation hangs on “multiextent loaded succesfully” HP DL380 G7

December 23rd, 2010 6 comments

Last week I build a rack for a customer with some brand new HP DL380 G7’s, pre-sales decided (happy me) to install ESXi 4.1.. after creating a RAID10 (2x 72GB) configuration on HP SmartArray 410i I started the installation.

After the installation my first boot, ESXi keeps hanging on “multiextent loaded successfully” .. rebooted once again.. no result, waited more then 20 minutes.. still no result.

Watching some log files (ALT + F12) I saw some warnings/errors:

Could not detect setting of QErr for device naa.60a98000572d504c654a573236636b6c. Error Failure

ScsiDeviceIO: 4494: Could not detect settings of QErr for device naa.6005….

LinScsiLLD:

VMWARE SCSI Id: Could not get disk id for vmhba32:CO:TO:LO

 

Solution:

The current (out of the box) firmware for the  HP SmartArray 410i was 3.03 , upgrade to version 3.66 (latest).

But… to solve this issue you need to delete the current array configuration and create a new one. Run the ESXi 4.1 installation again and the problem is permanently solved.

I know.. before you plan to install a new server.. first install the latest firmware with the HP Firmware DVD (955 mb).. I thought.. I’ll do this later.. NOT!

HP: MSA1500 cannot connect drive’s after powerfailure

June 24th, 2009 No comments

Vandaag na een stroomstoring is bij een klant de MSA1500 uitgevallen inclusief servers. Na het opnieuw op te hebben gestart van de MSA en later de servers konden vooralsnog de LUN’s niet worden benadert vanaf de servers. Eenmaal op de HP ACU de volgende foutmeldingen:

Indien je de schijven online wil krijgen en deze komen vooralsnog niet op de juist manier online na herstart van MSA kan je er voor kiezen om de schijven op de volgende manier online te krijgen:

Tip: Let erg goed op de aangegeven meldingen die na de optie van Re enable failed logical drive wordt weergegeven. Wees zeker dat indien het fout gaat dat er juist kan worden restored van tape!

HP ACU > MSA Controller > Logical Drives > Rechtermuisknop > “Re enable failed logical drive” vervolgens Save.
