VMware ESX 3.5 Update 5, Patch ESX350-200911216-UG: Updates SCSI AHCI Driver (1015038)
Release Date: December 3, 2009
Note: As part of the end of availability for some VMware Virtual Infrastructure product releases, the ESX 3.5 Update 5 upgrade package ESX350-Update05.zip has been replaced by ESX350-Update05a.zip in order to remove dependencies upon patches that will no longer be available for download. Hosts upgraded using ESX350-Update05a.zip are equivalent to those upgraded using the older package, but patch bundles released before ESX 3.5 Update 5 will not be required during the upgrade process. The software equivalent of ESX350-200911216-UG is included in ESX350-Update05a.zip, but the bundle ESX350-200911216-UG cannot be unpacked separately from ESX350-Update05a.zip as other U5 bundles can. If you want only the software fixes for the AHCI component, download ESX350-20102411-BG instead of this bundle.
Summaries and Symptoms
