ESX Troubleshooting


1. ESX 3.0.1 gave this error message on the console server and hang:
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unabale to mount root fs on 00:00
But when reboot into Debug Mode or Service Console, it completes the boot proccess normally without a problem
 
The boot options are stored in a file called /etc/grub.conf, and run "/usr/sbin/esxcfg-boot -b" in the debug mode to rebuild the boot image [initrd] and re-create the grub file
