VMware ESX 3.5 Update 2 Fehler

ESX 3.5, VMware No Comments »

Time-bomb Patch for Update 2

Das Update 2 wurde ab sofort zurückgezogen aufgrund eines heute (12.08.2008) aufgetretenen Fehlers. Seit heute können virtuelle Maschinen welche gestoppt/supsend/reset wurden, nicht mehr gestartet werden. Weiter funktioniert VMotion nicht mehr.

Es sind alle ESX 3.5 Update2 Systeme betroffen. Solange keine Tätigketien gemacht werden, laufen die virtuellen Maschinen auf den Hosts weiter.

Ein Patch steht noch nicht zur Verfügung!

Temporärer Workaround:
turn off NTP (if you’re using it), and then manually set the date of all ESX 3.5u2 hosts back to 10th of August. This can be done either through the VI Client (Host -> Configuration -> Time Configuration) or by typing date -s “08/10/2008″ at the Service Console command line on the ESX hosts.

Weitere Details sind aus der KB von VMware zu entnehmen.
KB von VMware 1006716

A virtual machine fails to power on, fails to leave suspend mode, or fails to migrate with VMotion and the following message is displayed in the vmware.log file for the virtual machine:

This product has expired. Be sure that your host machine’s date and time are set correctly.There is a more recent version available at the VMware web site: http://www.vmware.com/info?id=4.

————–
Module License Power on failed.
Currently running virtual machines will continue to run but will not be able to perform migration with VMotion, suspend or power on virtual machines.

An issue with ESX/ESXi 3.5 Update 2 causes the product license to expire on August 12, 2008. VMware engineering has isolated the root cause of this issue and will reissue the various upgrade media including the ESX 3.5 Update 2 ISO, ESXi 3.5 Update 2 ISO, ESX 3.5 Update 2 upgrade tar and zip files by noon, PST on August 13.
These will be available from the page: http://www.vmware.com/download/vi. Until then, VMware advises against upgrading to ESX/ESXi 3.5 Update 2.
