Solution

Summaries and Symptoms

This patch improves data collected when the vm-support script is run by an ESX administrator on request from VMware Technical Support or its support partners. This patch updates the vm-support script to exclude the file that contains the SSL keys for communication between ESX, VirtualCenter, and other applications. This file does not assist in troubleshooting host configuration issues.
 
For more information, see "Data Security Best Practices: SSL keys for communicating with VirtualCenter and other applications" at http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1008166.

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://support.vmware.com/selfsupport/download/ and install the bundle using esxupdate from the command line of the host. For more information, see the ESX Server 3 Patch Management Guide.
