VMware vCenter Server 5.0 update 1a now GA

You probably noticed this but VMware released vCenter server 5.0 Update 1a.

I hear you think: “what’s the fuss about?”. Two things:

  • The vCenter appliance replaced the IBM DB2 database with Postgress which reduces the virtual hardware footprint. Personally I think this is a great move!
  • Several fixes for SvMotion / vDS / HA. This is a perment fix. The procedure is well described over here.

I’m not going to copy the release notes over here. You can read them for your self:).
