I was unable to find online information about this, so i thought i would offer up information about this problem in hopes that maybe it will help someone else. During a build update of VMWare along with HBA upgrade and some other hardware enhancements i began to receive random errors from VMWare on one of my hosts regarding an error with the CPU Scheduler. This error racked my brain because there was no loss of functionality to the environment, but i was unwilling to just ignore the random error as some had suggested. the error seemed to stop for a short period of time after a reboot, however nothing ultimately fixed it like a good reinstall does. So as you can imagine where i am going with this, i ended up re installing VMWare on the host, then reapplying the build upgrades and then baam! all has been good since.

So if there is any one out there that is suffering the same fate, fair warning you will need to re install VMWare on the host. This process is only about 20 minutes in time and is actually very easy. Just make sure ALL of your VM’s are off the host because you will want to do a fresh install not a install over the top. Installing over the top of an already corrupt install sometimes turns out worse then expected, so i recommend just start from scratch.
