8.3 - Database corrupted after powering off the host - VMPLayer

Hi,

Every time I'm shutting down the host on which the Simulator is running, the database seems to be corrupted.

I made a clean power-off and a clean suspend operations. Same errors. I have to do a full re-install from scratch.

 

Is it a simulator issue, a VMPlayer issue or a windows issue (the host is Windows 7-64 bits with 8GB of RAM).

I'm afraid that the virtual disks or the virtual NVRAM are not correctly flushed when halting the simulator.

 

The simulator release is 8.3RC1. I don't remember to have such issues with the previous releases.

I've got one exibiting similar behaviour.  the management ring comes up in a 'normal' time frame.  The rest of the rings show the same error.  But they do eventualy come up.  Its maybe 20 minutes before the rest of the rings come online.  

 

This particular sim is running on ESX, so I think you can rule out the hypervisor.

Its also running 8.3GA, so its not isolated to the RC.
