We turned the server (DL380) off to configure the ILO. With that we were upgrading VMWare from 4.0 to 5.1. There were 2 failing hard drives on separate RAIDs, this should be no big deal. Upon turning VCenter on we noticed that 4 servers were not present. It did not recognize that the servers were ever there. What was supposed to take 2 hours has now taken 14 hours and counting. Good times.
Those servers didn't happen to be supporting Yahoo's fantasy sections did they?
