Hi Expert, Sorry to disturb, I am recently validating a configuration of VIC1240+VMware ESXi5.1+storage array with SANboot mode, but unfortunately i hit a problem during which VMware ESXi 5.1 threw a PSOD(purple screen of death) as attached when i am running io on the LUNs mapped from the storage on the guest OS with error injection running on the background simultaneously. The error injection is simply reboot each controller in the storage array alternatively. My setup is as follows: CIMC Controller firmware:2.1(1a) Adapter firmware:2.1(1a) esxcli software vib list|grep fc scsi-lpfc820 188.8.131.52-127vmw.510.0.0.799733 VMware VMwareCertified 2013-05-26 esxcli software vib list|grep nic misc-cnic-register 1.1-1vmw.510.0.0.799733 VMware VMwareCertified 2013-06-10 net-cnic 1.10.2j.v50.7-3vmw.510.0.0.799733 VMware VMwareCertified 2013-06-10 net-enic 184.108.40.206a-1vmw.510.0.0.799733 VMware VMwareCertified 2013-06-10 net-nx-nic 4.0.558-3vmw.510.0.0.799733 VMware VMwareCertified 2013-06-10 scsi-fnic 220.127.116.11-1vmw.510.0.0.799733 VMware VMwareCertified 2013-06-10 two vHBAs are created and connected to a storage array I have done the following experiments so far: -change another B200 M3 blade, still threw PSOD -both ESXi 5.1 build 799733 and build-1065491 exhibits the same problem -this problem consistently occur within two or three hours after EI begins Sounds like the PSOD points to fnic, can anyone provide any enlightment as to what could be the culprit? Looking forward to your response and really appreciate your help.
