CRITICAL Advisory: VMware Recalls ESXi 7 Update 3 From It’s Product Downloads Site
VMware has removed its latest ESXi release for version 7, Update 3 from its download service, due to driver interoperability problems that could cause failures during upgrades.
VMware’s investigation found some partner driver interoperability problems which prevented certain upgrade paths from completing in some customer environments. Specifically, driver VIB changes caused naming collisions in ESXi. This resulted in upgrade failures and related HA failures.
When updating to ESXi 7 Update 3 potential failures may occur during the upgrade process.
VMware will reissue ESXi 7 Update 3 as soon as the driver issues are fully resolved. Customers who have already successfully upgraded to ESXi 7 Update 3 may remain on this release and will have full support from VMware.
