vCenter 6.5 Update 1d (2017-12-19)

Post by tinto1970 » Dec 29, 2017 8:44 am

hi folks,

most people are at home so i have time to perform some updates: just finished with Veeam's Update3 (no issues yet) and i'd like to refresh my VCSA.
I noticed that the last version has been released on 19th so i guess i'd be a very early adopter if i proceed today.

Has anyone (maybe someone having a lab/test environment) or Veeam QA already tried the 9.5U3/6.5U1d combination?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Alessandro, I've asked around, our QA haven't yet deployed this update in the lab, but plan to do this next week. I will share if they see any issues.

I updated my VCSA at home yesterday to Update 1d from 12/29 and also my host using the latest HPE customized Update 1 imagine from 11/30. My backups finished without any problems last night though one Linux VM complained that vmtools isn't running. I probably need to update the tools since I upgraded the host.

hi, yesterday i've updated one of my VCSA up to 6.5U1d.
No (new) issues with that.

I'm still waiting to update the ESXi to the same version: it seems the iusses causing PSOD are finally resolved. I expect to read about that in next monday's "Word from Gostev" :-)
P.S.: it seems that yesterday they have released the esxi patch for Meltdown&Spectre

I patched mine up on the 3rd as I was having some issues with the web server on it. Running perfectly since.

Yup, all new vcenter and esxi builds for Meltdown fixes.
https://www.vmware.com/security/advisor ... -0004.html

These latest builds have new features - Hypervisor-Assisted Guest Mitigation for branch target injection https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/52085

VMware Requirements

Ensure that your VMs are using Hardware Version 9 or higher. For best performance, Hardware Version 11 or higher is recommended. VMware Knowledge Base article 1010675 discusses Hardware Versions.

Veeam testing would be great, thanks.

Hey foggy,

as you did not share anything can one assume the update is fine?
