ESXi 5.5 threw PSOD, Raid controller driver

I have received PSOD several times at diferent esxi hosts DL180 G6 (esxi 5.5 hp + applied all patches build: 1892794). There is a known issue with the hpsa driver that can cause PSODs, you should update to the latest scsi-hpsa version.



Check the smart array controller driver version:

esxcli software vib list | grep hpsa


In my case version was 

~ # esxcli software vib list | grep hpsa
scsi-hpsa                      Hewlett-Packard  VMwareCertified   2014-05-01


Here is a link to the driver.


To force the install via the command line use:

 #esxcli software vib update -v /tmp/scsi-hpsa-
