Before upgrading, see the Important notes later in the blog!

What’s new:

  • Publishing a VMTX template might fail if you do not specify a target ESXi host while creating a subscription
    • When you publish a virtual machine template managed by Content Library from a published library to multiple subscribers, the operation might fail if you do not specify a target ESXi host while creating the subscription. You see a similar exception: An invalid argument \”spec.location.host\” was specified.
    • This issue is resolved in this release. The fix adds the SelectCompatibleHostActivity method to automatically select a compatible ESXi host from cluster or resource pools if a host is not specified.
  • Update to Photon OS kernel
    • Photon OS kernel is updated to to version 4.4.182 to resolve security issues with identifiers CVE-2019-11477, CVE-2019-11478, and CVE-2019-11479.
