VMware finally patches ESXi 5.5 Update 1 NFS bug

VMware has issued a patch to fix a problem where ESXi 5.5 Update 1 randomly disconnects from NFS storage.

The VMware NFS bug popped up in April, causing VMs to appear frozen and affecting connections to datastores from multiple storage vendors. With no official fix available, VMware pros warned each other against upgrading to ESXi 5.5 Update 1 — or to roll back to the previous version if they’d already migrated.

VMware released the patch yesterday, and it is available to download from the VMware Knowledge Base. The patch also addresses the CCS Injection vulnerability in OpenSSL.
