We have just experienced a failing HBA in our VMware farm. In this case we were getting an HBA that was failing/recovering on a nice steady cycle and that caused degradations in many of the hosted servers (despite everything being dual path).

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.
