Solution

Summary

This patch fixes a battery status issue in the ESX Server host sensors.

Symptoms

In the VI Client, the health status for a battery associated with an LSI HBA always shows as "Not Good" (red), even though the battery is fully charged.

Deployment Considerations

None beyond the required patch bundles and reboot information listed in the table, above.

Patch Download and Installation

See the VMware Update Manager Administration Guide for instructions on using Update Manager to download and install patches to automatically update ESX Server 3.5 hosts.

To update ESX Server 3.5 hosts when not using Update Manager, download the most recent patch bundle from http://www.vmware.com/download/vi/vi3_patches_35.html and install the bundle using esxupdate from the command line of the host. For more information, see the ESX Server 3 Patch Management Guide.
