VMware Notifies of ESX 4 Update 1 Issue

For ESX version 4 systems upgrading to Update 1 using Update Manager, VMware today is reporting a Purple Screen of Death (PS0D) for certain systems. These are ESX installations that include 3rd party agents. VMware KB article 1016070 came online just today. The KB article indicates that you should engage support before proceeding. Please pass this along.

I’ve never been a fan of agents on host, as ESX and more so ESXi are purpose built OSes. The case can be made that it is a JeOS (Just enough OS).
