VMware releases update to VirtualCenter and VMware Converter

Rick Vanover Rick Vanover Profile: Rick Vanover


Last week, VMware released VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 3. The release fixes issues with Update 2 (build 104263), which was released in July, before the infamous product expiration issue. In the immediate releases after the problem, a corrected version of Virtual Center was not released.

This update fixes 19 various issues but does not provide any new functionality. Several of the resolved issues involve VMware High Availability and Distributed Resource Scheduler functionality — in the previous version, various situations prevented the functionality from working correctly.

VMware Converter Enterprise, now on build 62407, also has an update that will correct two minor issues with connecting to a VirtualCenter server for conversions. This is different than the VMware Converter Enterprise standalone edition, which installs on remote systems instead of the VirtualCenter server. The standalone version remains at version 3.0.3 (build 89816).

More information on VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 3 can be found in the release notes on VMware’s website.

    The VirtualCenter Update 3 release does not fix the product expriation issue. This issue was addressed with a re-release of ESX Update2 (8/13/2008 Build 110268). The beta time bomb code was embeded in the ESX serve rcode not VirtualCenter.
