VMware: SCSI reservation conflicts

December 23rd, 2010 5 comments

Last week I had some trouble by a customer, 4 of my 8 datastores aren’t visible/accessible on the 6 ESX 3.5u2 hosts connected to a (FC) HP MSA1500.  Some datastores become unavailable and some were not affected. Numerous VMs were down, some of those with warning messages like Orphaned and Inaccessible.

Oke.. let’s troubleshoot:

 

Checking for active paths: esxcfg-mpath -l | grep -i active

FC 6:2.1 210100e08bb27a58<->500508b30091aac9 vmhba1:0:6 On active preferred

All online!

Checking for death paths: esxcfg-mpath -l | grep -i death

[root@esxmeri01 /]#

None death paths!

 

Checking my HBA’s connected to the SAN: cd /vmfs/devices/disks and listls vmh*
