vSphere 6.0 Update 2 released

Yesterday, 2016-03-15, VMware released vCenter Server 6.o U2 and ESXi 6.0 U2. There are quite a few good fixes and enhancements and i’ll list a few things i have seen in the field that will be fixed with these releases:

  • Hostd stops responding when esxcli commands are executed using PowerCLI
  • Upgrading vCenter Server from 5.5 Update 3b to 6.0 Update 1b might fail
  • In a vDS environment, vMotion fails after removing LAG
  • ESXi host experiences a purple diagnostic screen with multiple Correctable Machine Check Interrupt (CMCI) messages
  • Windows Session Authentication (SSPI) login might fail on the VMware-csd side, if you are a member of multiple groups
  • Unable to perform active directory operations after you join the ESXi Host to Active Directory
  • Security updates related to:
    • glibc
    • NTP
    • OpenSSH
    • libPNG
    • zlib
