I am dealing with a virtual machine that is receiving the following entry in the event log:
TIME OF EVENT: 7/30/2011 3:47:05 PM
EVENT LOG: System
EVENT SOURCE: disk
EVENT ID: 7
DESCRIPTION: The device, \Device\Harddisk3\DR3, has a bad block.
Pretty standard fare if this was a physical server, but I need to determine if this is an issue with a .vmdk file have a 'virtual' bad block or if this is occurring because of a physical disk on the SAN.
Is there a way to determine this without taking the VM offline?
