Product: VMware ESXi 5.5

The update resolves 3 issues:

  • The clomd service might stop responding and Virtual machine operations on the Virtual SAN datastore fail with an error message similar to the following:

    create directory <server-detail>-<vm-name> (Cannot Create File)

  • Virtual SAN cluster might report that the Virtual SAN datastore is running out of space even though space is available in the datastore. An error message similar to the following is displayed:

    There is no more space for virtual disk <vm-name>.vmdk. You might be able to continue this session by freeing disk space on the relevant volume, and clicking _Retry. Click Cancel to terminate this session.

  • Fixed incorrect calculation of the values for Usage and Usage in MHz in the Host Performance tab.
