ESX Server software fails to install when more than 128 LUNs are attached (2154)
Waiting for the X Server to start... log located in /tmp/X.log 1...2...3...4...5... X server started successfully. Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1016, in ? iutil.makeDriveDeviceNodes() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 415, in makeDriveDeviceNodes isys.makeDevInode (drive, "/dev/%s" % (drive,)) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 372, in makeDevInode _isys.mkdevinode(name,fn)
To work around this issue, temporarily remove the access to more than 128 LUNs before installation starts by disconnecting the cables from any HBAs or NICs that might lead to the storage or exclude the storage target from the active fabric zone.
After the installation completes, re-enable the connection to the storage.
