LinScsi: SCSILinuxAbortCommands: 1843: Failed, Driver MPT SAS Host, for vmhba2


Some of the VMs hosted on VMware ESXi 5.5 (DELL PowerEdge T310 host) occasionally become unresponsive.
All attempts to login to the host via VMware vSphere Client fails with following error:

Could Not Connect
vSphere Client could not connect to "". An unknown connection error occurred. (The request failed because the remote server took too long to respond. (The operation has timed out))

VMware console vmkernel system logs (ALT + F12) display following errors:

mptscsih:  ioc0: task abort: FAILED (sc=0x412e8182ecc0)

mptscsih:  ¡oc0: attempting task abort! (sc=0x412e81718200)

The vmbha2 refers to a RAID-1 SATA array that had all affected virtual machines hosted.

Plesk on CentOS - FTP server (ProFTPd) not working in passive mode


FTP clients fail to connect to Plesk FTP Server (ProFTPd) hosted on CentOS. FTP login actually succeeds, but directory listing command times out.

Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity.
Error: Failed to retrieve directly listing.


The issue occurred because ProFTPd passive mode was not configured on the server.
