VMware vCenter Server 5.5 Update 2 d

So yesterday, 2015-01-27, VMware released vCenter Server U2d. Quite a lot of minor versions being released for this version but the latest one was actually U2b and not U2c. The latest release now includes the following components:

  • vCenter Server 5.5 Update 2d | 27 JAN 2015 | Build 2442329
  • vCenter Server 5.5 Update 2d Installation Package | 27 JAN 2015 | Build 2442328
  • vCenter Server Appliance 5.5 Update 2d | 27 JAN 2015 | Build 2442330

This release focuses on solving issues and not adding functionality. While reading through the release notes i saw at least four resolved issues i have seen in the past and that i know my customers will like e.g.:

  • VMware Directory Service consumes excessive memory
  • Network Interface Cards of virtual machines in disconnected state might get ejected during vMotion

  • Accessing the Storage View tab fails with the error – Request failed. Server took to long to respond

  • Datastore browser in vSphere Web Client does not overwrite existing files
