PERC 6i and VMWare ESXi

 I have a PowerEdge 1800 running VMWare ESXi 3.5, PERC6i with 2 x 
WD 640's in a RAID 1. The machine has been running fine for about a 
month or so. Yesterday, after restarting the server, VMWare has 
trouble seeing my virtual machines(it can see the datastore though) 
and none of them will start. A quick look at syslog shows the 
following entry:

megasas: MFI FW status 0x19

megaraid_sas.h shows 0x19 as MFI_STAT_LD_LBA_OUT_OF_RANGE. My guess 
is that VMWare is attempting to read addresses beyond the upper 
partition boundary. Does anyone have any experience with this, or 
has ever experienced this issue? Is there a way to capture the scsi 
packets and take a look at the addresses?
