Summaries and Symptoms

This patch updates the misc-drivers VIB to resolve the following issues:

  • The IBM BladeCenter HS23 that boots from a USB device is unable to write the coredump file when the active coredump partition is configured on an USB device. A purple screen displays a message that the dump is initiated but is not completed.

  • The pci.ids file is refreshed to contain the latest PCI IDs.

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.
