Hardware: HP Proliant DL385
Cause: Probably memory. Read notes on ESX patch 2066306
- Virtual machines experiencing high cpu load during a VMotion migration can hang after the migration is complete.
- Virtual machines can crash during a NUMA migration due to memory allocation failures.
- Kernel memory can become corrupted, resulting in a kernel crash when using 64-bit guest operating systems in virtual machines on ESX Server hosts with AMD processors.
Resolution: Reboot. In maintenance window relocated memory and it seems to be solved.
