ESX puede producir una PSOD al actualizar de 4.0 a 4.0 Update 1

Bueno, los chicos de VMware también son humanos y la cagan de vez en cuando.

Se ha detectado problemas al actualizar de ESX 4.0 a ESX 4.0 Update 1 a través de VMware Update Services. Sólo sucede en los servidores HP que corren los agentes del HP Insight Manager. El servidor se queda pajarito con una bonita pantalla Pink Screen Of Death, que no es ninguna canción de Pink Floyd sino una bonita pantalla Rosa o Lila, como le queráis llamar y unas gotitas de sudor en la frente del administrador de VMware :-S

Aún así, que lo sepáis por si lo podéis evitar.

El comunicado completo:

"You need to make your customers planning to upgrade from ESX 4.0 to ESX 4.0 Update 1 aware of this issue.

Below is an external facing communication you can use. Please note that we currently have only reported incidents on HP Servers when running HP Insight Manager agents. However this information is internal only at present as VMware and HP are investigating. Please do not mention HP in any external communication.

Who is affected:

Customers who are using VMware vSphere ESX 4.0 and are wanting to install update 1, via VMware Update Manager (VUM).

Problem description:

Upgrading ESX 4.0 to 4.0 U1 using VUM fails or times out. Rebooting host results in a PSOD and the host has to be re-installed.

Workaround:

Please disable any 3rd party hardware monitoring agents running on the ESX 4.0 server before applying the update.

For customers that have already run into this issue and have installed the update but have not rebooted, they must contact Support.

The 3rd party agents can be enabled again after the upgrade is completed.

ESX 4.0 U1 is no longer available for download.

VMware is investigating this issue.
