  • 5 Ratings

Hewlett-Packard has identified an issue that may occur when updating the configuration of a ProLiant server running HP Integrated VMware ESX Server 3i on certain USB Keys.

Configuration settings are lost upon rebooting supported ProLiant servers running VMware ESX 3i Server because there is not sufficient time during shutdown to write all configuration data to the affected USB Key.

On rare occasions, the server may not boot properly due to a hardware issue related to the USB key.


HP customers can obtain a replacement USB Key under warranty by contacting HP Customer Support.
