Heads up folks! for those of you that are using the vSphere Storage Appliance 5.1.1 (VSA). If you have or are planning to apply the vCenter Server 5.1U1 patch, you must also upgrade the Sphere Storage Appliance (VSA) to version 5.1.3 after deploying the vCenter Server 5.1U1 patch due to the fact that the Sphere Storage Appliance 5.1.1 (VSA) is not compatible with the latest vCenter Server patch release.
Some of the changes added to the new release are:
- Increase of the VMFS heap size to 256MB by default. This change will allow ESXi hosts to address up 24TB of storage capacity.
- Support for 10 Gigabit Ethernet NICs
Check out the vSphere Storage Appliance 5.1.3 (VSA) release notes for more details on the fixes and features of this release.
