Source:  Patrick van der Veen

Submitted by: Patrick van der Veen
Date: 8th Jan, 2007
Hardware: HP Proliant DL385
Build: 3.0.0.
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.
