Expendable news item here too good not to be posted.  For those who may have missed it, VMware has released an update to the vSphere Management Assistant (vMA) 5.1 appliances formally referred to as Patch 1.  This release is documented in VMware KB 2044135 and the updated appliance bits can be downloaded from (http://vmware.com/download/ ).  Log in; choose the VMware vSphere link, then the Drivers & Tools tab. Patch 1 bundles with it the following enhancements:

  • The base operating system is updated to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 (12-Jan-2013).
  • JRE is updated to JRE 1.6.0_41, which includes several critical fixes.
  • VMware Tools is updated to 8.3.17 (build 870839).
  • A resxtop connection failure issue has been fixed.

In vMA 5.1, resxtop SSL verification checks has been enabled. This might cause resxtop to fail when connecting to hosts and displays an exception message similar the following: HTTPS_CA_FILE or HTTPS_CA_DIR not set. Don’t worry this issue is fixed through this patch.
