With HDLM, we have "Intermittent Error Monitor" that prevents an endless fail/recover cycle from causing this sort of problem. However we can't use HDLM with VMware and it doesn't appear to natively support a similar feature.
Does anyone else have any experience of this? Or thoughts as to how we might prevent this from recurring.
