I/O Errors = Failing HD = ESX Server Issues

Hello All,

Today I ran into some issues.  Merry Christmas!

My Laptop/ESXi 5 Server started giving me issues with my guest systems.  After trying to work out the issues with web-server I noticed that other machine were also having the same issues.  Oh no!  My hard drive is on its way out.  I quickly jumped into action shutting down my guest and moving them to a backup location.  I was able to swap the drive and move them back and get online…  I am glad to say there has been no data loss, but downtime to and my other system used internally here at home.    I guess I will be building my mini SAN to host my systems.  I don’t want to deal with this again anytime soon.
