VMK Errors Code List in ESXi 6.0

Below are the VMkernel errors we may get while working on ESXi environment. These are basically known as VMK Errors, and you will see something like VMK_*.*

vmkerrcode utility can be use to list out the codes in each ESX/ESXi version. Run below command in ESXi CLI to list all errors with detailed description.

- Login to ESXi through SSH.

- Command: vmkerrcode -l
