Unknown - Disk timeouts

Submitted by: Mike Laverick
Date: 29 Oct 2007
Build: ESX 3.0.2  build 52797
Hardware: ProLiant DL385 G1
Cause: Unknown. I had a VM with very full disk (stored on my SAN). I was doing some kind of search for big or malicious files because it was unusually full for what the VM’s purpose is (its a domain controller).

Resolution: Shutdown ESX host and power on again
