Issue

  • Multiple Windows Server 2016 VM goes to unresponsive state when Event ID 129 is reported and recovers automatically.

  • The affected VMs are mainly used for CCTV video recordings (write intensive).
  • This environment has mix of E-series and FAS storage controllers, out of which E-series is mainly used for CCTV video recording. Due to this, E-series based datastore are mostly affected. 
  • The Event ID 129 are also observed on FAS based VMs, however with lesser frequency.
  • Packet capture between the ESXi host and E-series controller shows initiator aborting SCSI read requests within (~7 ms).
