vSphere ESXi 5.5U1 and NFS All Path Down patch

As you might know there has been a known issue with vSphere ESXi 5.5U1 where the ESXi host intermittently can lose NFS connectivity and an All Paths Down (APD) is observed. This issue could result in:

  • Blue screen in Windows based virtual machines
  • Read only file systems for Linux based virtual machines.

The patch also fixes the OpenSSL vulnerabilities.
More details about the issue can be found in VMware KB 2076392

Yesterday, June 10, VMware released a patch for the problem which is really good news.

The patch can be downloaded via VMware Download patches section on their web site. Select “ESXi Embedded & Installable” and the release date June 10 2014 and the patch will be available for download.
