vCenter Server 5.5.0b released

VMware vCenter Server 5.5.0b, for both the Windows based vCenter Server and the virtual appliance vCenter Server, was released 2013-12-22. The software can be downloaded from various locations on the VMware download site depending on your license but this link directs you to the VMware vSphere section of the VMware download site.
I have identified at least a couple of problems i have seen with 5.5 that have been fixed in this release, e.g:

  • vCenter Server, vSphere Client, and vSphere Web Client
  • Active Directory is not added automatically as identity resource in vCenter Single Sign-On
  • Unable to modify password or remove users from system-domain after you upgrade from vCenter Server 5.1 to 5.5
  • Attempts to clone, create, or storage vMotion a virtual machine fails when the destination data store is a Storage DRS POD

There a lot of more fixes to the release and you can read all about them in the VMware release notes foundĀ here.

Thanks VMware for this update.
