Note: The log excerpts are examples. Date, time, and environmental variables may vary depending on your environment.


This issue is due to a condition that arises when the vSAN top object list is accessed. In certain scenarios, the list can be queried prior to an object being fully initialized. When this occurs, the host will panic.


This issue is resolved in ESXi 6.0 Update 3, available at VMware Downloads and ESXi 6.5.0d(vSAN 6.6) available at VMware Downloads.
