VMware ESX 3.5, Patch ESX350-200811402-SG: Updates ESX Scripts (1007502)
Note: This patch is a general classification, not security, despite the "SG" suffix in its name.
Summaries and Symptoms
This patch fixes the following issues:
- The output of vdf -P on a LUN greater than 1TB is wrapped. Because the line spacing allows only 10 digits, some tools or scripts cannot use the value. This change increases the spacing to 15 digits.
- The scanning process of VMware Update Manager and esxupdate erroneously reports installed, obsolete bundles as not installed. As a result, these bundles are offered to be re-installed.
If you are remediating your ESX system using Update Manager 1.0 Update 1 or earlier, see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1007923.
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.
