VMware re-release Update1 for ESX4.0 – Fixes Update1 ‘Issue’

December 11, 2009

Following a discovered issue with Update 1 for ESX4.0 which was released on the 23rd November, VMware re-relase Update1a to fix the problems. Potentially a situation could occur when the ESX host could be left in an unstable state with the upgrade failing. The issue is caused by an upgrade to a the glibc file contained in Update 1. The new version of glibc (version 5.3) introduces a change to the locking mechanism. Previously, a bug was reported that affected users running HP Insight Manager agents on their ESX hosts. However, the bug also affected users that run RPM commands during the upgrade process.

The fixed version of Update 1 (dubbed Update 1a) fixes the aforementioned issues. Update 1a can be obtained via Update Manager and the patch download site.
