Had not touched my UCS five install for a few weeks. Login, started an update and get some error but I wasn’t paying attention. The vm became nonresponsive. Tried to reboot and it failed ending up in busy box.
Now I need to re-create everything from scratch which is extremely distressing. However I can cope. What I want is to figure out why it happened so I can keep it from happening again?
The virtual environment was xen-ng with xen orchestra as the management console. UCS vm had 6 GB RAM, two CPU cores, minimal configuration, half a dozen machines, DNS and that’s about it. I saved the VM image in case there’s something that can be found by looking at the image.
UCS was installed by importing the VMware OVA image. Would I have been better off using the ISO for installing?
