Today one of the SAN’s thought it was vacation. A nice error showing there was something wrong ‘vmware Failing I/O due to too many reservation conflicts’ Reading through http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1005009… Checked the volume on the console and could not even enter the directory. Management of the SAN was also unreachable. Rebooted the SAN.
Yesterday i added a local user to vSphere 4 host with the vSphere client. I forgot the ‘shell access’ box. After that i enabled the box for shell access, when logging in, the home directory did not exist. Solution for this: cd /home mkdir username chown username dirname chmod 700 dirname
