VMware ESX 3.5, Patch ESX350-200910408-BG: Updates VMkernel iSCSI driver (1013131)
Release Date: October 16, 2009
When ESX 3.5 hosts are connected to Adaptec Snap Server series or Dell NX series of NAS appliances through the ESX software iSCSI initiator, sometimes the iSCSI LUNs are not detected by the ESX 3.5 hosts. The issue is caused due to the way the software iSCSI driver detects an overflow condition. This patch fixes the issue.
None beyond the required patch bundles and reboot information listed in the table, above.
