I have a test OES server on which I also run VMware.
Once in a while VMware hangs the server, I cannot log in (after I type the
password nothing happens), users that are logged in stay logged in.
I want to kill the VMware process but it fails (kill -9 pid), the only
solution is to do a cold reset of the server, because shutdown -r now also
fails (in /var/log/messages there is nothing written to find a cause).
Does anyone have a clue?
