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.
