RHE Linux 5 guest on ESX - Bad superblock

RHE Linux 5 guest on ESX - Bad superblock

RHE Linux 5 guest on ESX - Bad superblock

  My OS and data volumes keep going corrupt with bad superblock messages.  Have ended up rebuilding if OS goes corrupt and if data vol goes then its a reformat.  Linux guest OS is tied to FC SAN drives and seondary data drive is on sata drives on SAN.
  Also, if I build guest Linux box on ESX with XEN kernel vmware tools will not load.  If I build with Centos I can load tools.  Is there a difference or benefit to one or the other? Linux newbee.

RE: RHE Linux 5 guest on ESX - Bad superblock

Sounds like you have issues with your SAN.  I would test the storage array for starters.

As for Linux, XEN is another virtualization platform which is incompatible with VMware.  Use the VMware tools.
