    The updates for ESX and ESXi were pushed out through Update Manager this week. Took all of 5 minutes to install.

    Patched mine too. Update 1 has the added bonus of supporting vCenter client on Windows 7 and officially supporting 2008 R2 VM's.
    IT guy since 12/00

    Recent: 11/2019 - RHCSA (RHEL 7); 2/2019 - Updated VCP to 6.5 (just a few days before VMware discontinued the re-cert policy...)
    Working on: RHCE/Ansible
    Future: Probably continued Red Hat Immersion, Possibly VCAP Design, or maybe a completely different path. Depends on job demands...

    I'm just as guilty of jumping on the pro-VMware bandwagon as the next guy but the fact it took months to get the client working on Windows 7 without having to make changes to the configuration file and environmental variables is ridiculous. I'm glad to see this resolved.

    So the problem occurs only when using UpdateManager to apply U1. Those of us who are still managing ESXi manually won't PSOD over this.

    ESXi wouldn't have the issue since it doesn't have a service console to install 3rd party management agents in so you'd be fine their either way.

    We have three ESX hosts in our environment. So far, this has not been an issue for any of them.

    Yeah, the problem is with UpdateManager and not with U1 itself. *whew!*

    Good thing my servers are Dell and not HP. I was running the latest OpenManage client on all my ESX servers and didn't get any PSOD's.

    PSOD's suck very much. My VMWare instructor said I'd probably never see a PSOD, I've already seen 2 this year.
