ESXi 6.7 can not mount local PMem datastore – Destroy Volume augotconfigurePMem.py

ESXi

Issue – ESXi 6.7 host had a PSOD. After reboot, vCSA / Host / Configure / Hardware / Memory / Persistent Memory = 0 MB

Troubleshooting-

  • The ESXi host UI https://FQDN/ui/#/host/storage/datastores does NOT list the local PMemDS-UUID datastore.
  • /ui/#/host/storage/nvdimm/devices/ shows the physical modules and namespaces.
  • Booting into the BIOS to run the PMDIMM health check passes. Delete the namespaces, recreating the goal in the BIOS and booting to ESXi does not allow the PMemDS-UUID datastore to be created on boot.
