Solution

Summaries and Symptoms

This patch updates the usbcore-usb and vmkata VIBs to resolve the following issues:

  • The ESXi host might fail with a purple screen when booting the ESXi host on the following Oracle servers: X6-2, X5-2, and X4-2, and the backtrace shows that is caused by pcidrv_alloc_resource failure. The issue is caused because the system cannot recognize or reserve resources for the USB device.

Patch Download and Installation

The typical way to apply patches to ESXi hosts is through the VMware vSphere Update Manager. For details, see the Installing and Administering VMware vSphere Update Manager.

ESXi hosts can be updated by manually downloading the patch ZIP file from the VMware download page and installing the VIB by using the esxcli software vib command. Additionally, the system can be updated using the image profile and the esxcli software profile command. For details, see the vSphere Command-Line Interface Concepts and Examples and the vSphere Upgrade Guide.
