ESXi 6.0 Express Patch 6 (build 3825889)

This patch is reported to break Instant VM Recovery and all dependent functionality (SureBackup, U-AIR).
We have a number of customers affected and are opening a case with VMware while searching for workarounds.

That patch affected my environment. Luckily I was able to revert to the previous version of ESXi using these instructions:

Hi,

can you tell us more about the issue? Is the reason cbt related (I ask because I acutally have some troubles with cbt and vSphere 6 Build 3825889).

Thank you,
Andreas

Short question, as we're still on v8: is a hot fix available for Veeam 8 or just Veeam 9?

Thank you!

I haven't logged a call yet but I reverted the two DLL's that I was given as the hotfix as it added a whole lot of problems in my backups...reverting the DLL's cured the issues...so I'm wary of the hotfix...

I'll log a call and reapply the DLL's to capture the logs and the issues...

Nick, letting our engineers know about issues you've met after applying the hotfix will be indeed much appreciated.

Hi Julien, I guess it will be included in the next Veeam B&R update.

If you mean major Veeam B&R release (not v9 update), then it will be included in Veeam B&R v9.5 coming later this year.

Just a heads up, apparently this VMware patch also breaks CBT :(
