Summaries and Symptoms

This patch updates the lsu-hp-hpsa-plugin and resolves the following issue:

  • Hostd fails when you upgrade ESXi 5.5.x hosts to ESXi 6.0.x with the P04 patch. You can observe this issue when you have installed an asynchronous HPSA driver that supports HBA mode.

    Although ESXi supports getting HPSA disk location information in HBA mode, problems might occur when one of the following conditions is met:

    • You installed an old hpssacli utility, version or older.

    • You used an external array to connect the HPSA controller.

    These problems lead to hostd failures and the host becoming unreachable by the vSphere Client and vCenter Server.

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.
