We have a long running ESXi instance (6.7.0 Update 2) that has been running a Win Server 2019 for over a year. Upon a recent reboot, we are getting a red screen of death reading:
“Panic requested by another PCPU”.
We have a mid-day snapshot from a few days back, and that will run fine. But, once we reboot the VM, Windows will start to boot up (never get to the logon screen) and then freeze. About a minute later the ESXI monitor will show this again.
I’m at a complete loss in how to diagnose and fix this issue. The server is up and running right now (has been for hours), but a reboot will put us back in this state after about 5 minutes.
Any ideas? I’ll gladly supply any logs, etc. Or, follow any links in collecting what is needed to further a solution.
Thank you for your time!
