VMware have released a new critical patch for ESXi 6.0.0 including critical bugfix for PSOD issues.
If you’re lucky enough to be running ESXi 6 in your environment then you’d be well advised to install this latest patch, particularly if you’re a VSAN customer as several VSAN-related PRs are fixed in the new build.
The new patch release will take ESXi 6.0.0. to Build 4192238 and delivers an update to the host client, updated tools and drivers, and updated base ESX and VSAN vibs offering fixes for the following:
- An ESXi host might stop responding with a PSOD when you migrate VMs from an ESXi host to maintenance mode
- An ESXi host might stop responding with a PSOD during asynchronous IO Filter operations
- ESXi 6 hosts using mpt2sas or mptsas drivers might fail with a PSOD
- ESXi falsely reports a ‘deprecated VMFS volume’ warning message following upgrading a VMFS3 volume to VMFS5
- vMotion of active SQL node in a SQL cluster may become inaccessible if using Round-Robin PSP
- NFS v4.1 datastores report frequent APD messages even after recovering from the APD
This critical bugfix patch will require a host reboot to take effect, so crank up VUM and let it do the hard work for you! For full details of the patch and a download link see VMware KB2145667
