Summaries and Symptoms

This patch updates the esx-ui VIB.

The ESXi 6.5.0d release includes new features and bug fixes.

Issues fixed in this patch (and their relevant symptoms, if applicable) include:

  • For a VMware vSAN enabled host, you can now view the VMware vSAN configuration, peer hosts, and health checks under the Monitor section of the VMware vSAN datastore.
    For more information related to vSAN 6.6, see the vSAN 6.6 Release Notes and the vSAN 6.6 documentation.
  • When you try to log in to the VMware Host Client by using Chrome 57, the VMware Host Client immediately reports an error. The reported error is an Angular Digest in progress error.

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.
