One of the vms became unreaponsive so I gave that vm a reset, but dit not come online. When I looked at the storage I noticed that the datastore was not online- The vmhba is displaying dead path state. The othe vms are stil runnig. I believe the call this a PDL state? I have an article (vmware kb) that is suggestibg to shutdown all vms and unoutkng the datastore. The doing a scan and mout the store again. What is the risk of all vms are down after this procedure. Or is there another simple solution? Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
