In addition, this patch resolves an issue where, on a virtual machine running in full-screen mode, the mouse does not function properly in the lower portion of the screen. This issue is not specific to a guest operating system or to any specific hardware. When this issue is encountered, the lower portion of the screen appears to be accessible with the mouse pointer. However, clicks do not result in any response.

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


Patch Download and Installation

See the VMware vCenter Update Manager Administration Guide for instructions on using Update Manager to download and install patches to automatically update ESX 4.1 hosts.

To update ESX 4.1 hosts without using Update Manager, download the patch ZIP file from http://support.vmware.com/selfsupport/download/ and install the bulletin by using esxupdate from the command line of the host. For more information, see the ESX 4.1 Patch Management Guide.
