VMware vSphere ESXi 6.7


Summaries and Symptoms

This patch updates the following issues:

  • This ESXi patch provides part of the hypervisor-assisted guest mitigation of CVE-2018-3639 for guest operating systems. For important details on this mitigation, see VMware Security Advisory VMSA-2018-0012.1.
  • Datastores might become inaccessible after a rebootless upgrade in ESXi configurations with LSI controllers. This is because a STOP UNIT command, sent to drives during driver unload, is not matched with a START UNIT command during load. As result, the drive media might be inaccessible after a reboot.

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 VMware ESXi Upgrade Guide.
