Oracle linux 6.1 freezes on ESXi 4.0
 
My Oracle Linux vm freezes on ESXi 4.0 server. THe ssh connections are terminated at the same time. When I switch to console I see the last screenshot that does not respond, so I have to power off/on the vm to bring it back on line. I checked the /var/log/messages but could not find anything releated to the reason why it happens. Where else can I look? The guest is not in power safe mode. VM ware tools are not installed on the guest.

If you're using Oracle Linux on VMWare ESX, you're paying for support from both vendors. The best place to look would be to their tech-support lines and their knowledgebases.

A very brief look on VMWare's site says that ESXi4.0 is not compatible with Oracle Linux 6.x (http://www.vmware.com/resources/comp...&testConfig=16), which probably has alot to do with your problem(s). Best thing would be to contact Oracle first for assistance.

check the RAM size and

Code:

#free -m
to make sure your machine has enough memory to work

are you also having performance issues with your VM?
