VMware Kernel Return Codes

From time to time I find myself reaming through VMware log files in an effort to diagnose various failure events. This is certainly not my favorite task so to make the process a little less painful I decided to extract the vmkernel return codes from the VMware open source libraries and place an easily accessible tabled version of them on my blog. While it’s not a very interesting blog entry it does have a useful purpose. I promise to get back to some more interesting entries soon.You can also use the console command vmkerrcode -l if it’s handy.

This posted list is only for ESX 3.5.x, vSphere has different error codes and they do not map to ESX 3.5.x
