VMware ESXi 6.0 Update 1b released


VMware released ESXi 6.0 Update 1b where the CBT issue is listed as resolved making the release 6.0 robust enough to proceed with vSphere 6.0 upgrade for those that still run previous release in their environments.

After waiting several months since its release, VMware seems to have finally solved the issues that were affecting vSphere 6.0 with the result of having now an environment stable and ready to be implemented.


What's new

In addition the new update enables support for TLS versions 1.1 and 1.2 for most of the vSphere components without breaking the previously supported compatibility/interoperability. vSphere components that still support only TLS version 1.0 are the following:

  • vSphere Client
  • Virtual SAN Observer on vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA)
  • Syslog on vCSA
  • Auto Deploy on vCSA
  • Auto Deploy/iPXE

The ESXi 6.0 Update 1b now supports all TLS versions 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 with the exceptions listed above.

Solved several issues in different areas.


Install Update 1b

ESXi 6.0 Update 1b can be deployed quickly and easily using VUM.
