Problems with updates and ESX?

If you use VMware products for server virtualization, there’s a fair chance that you’ve encountered one of two recent glitches that are affecting your VMs.

Microsoft recently updated the .NET Framework, and this update has been keeping some vSphere clients from launching. And a recent update from VMware is causing some PCoIP connections to fail.

Luckily, Greg Shields, the author of our new Virtualization FAQs section has already addressed these problems. See this FAQ for more on the .NET problem, and this one for more on the PCoIP problem. Keep watching the Virtualization FAQs page for more on problems that can develop with virtualization.

You can submit virtualization questions to Greg using our FAQ Submittal Form. You can submit FAQs to our experts on just about any aspect of IT using the same form.
