The VMWare Case

Hi,

This morning I’ve started as usual my Virtual XP Sp2 Box, but at win’s StartUp Time,
something went Wrong, a Redundancy Check failed..

 Aug 25 07:45:18: vmx| VMXAIOMGR: Retry on read "D:My Virtual MachinesWindows XP

 ProfessionalWindows XP Professional.vmdk" : Errore nei dati (controllo di ridondanza
 ciclico).

It’s clear VMXAIOMGR give us an Error (5890) and error code (23), maybe there is a Minidump..
Indeed you can obtain at every VM crash, in the log we can see the following line:

Aug 25 07:50:03: vmx| CoreDump: Writing minidump to C:\Documents and Settings\Proprietario\Dati applicazioni\VMware\vmware-vmx-944.dmp

.:: The Solution ::.

aiomgr.buffered = “TRUE” (this is always suggested, because many times the I/O manager is overcharged of work😉 )

Sometimes Antivirus Scanners can lock portion portion of file, but no damage is caused to the virtual HD.

But a CRC Error means that the physical hardisk have some damaged cluster so the best solution is to move, in another partition the VM File.

Hope this may help.

See you to the next post

    Unfortunately is not a problem of Virtualization, but of damaged Hardisk🙂

    I understood it was a damage of the harddisk, I was joking😛
