@vNote42The KB talks about the ISO:

IMPORTANT: VMware removed the ESXi 7.0 Update 3 ISO from all sites on November 12, 2021 due to an upgrade-impacting issue. Build 18905247 for ESXi 7.0 Update 3b ISO replaces build 18644231 for ESXi 7.0 Update 3 ISO. 

So I’ve you patch(ed) to U3 (without letter) with Update/Lifecycle manager your’re not affected?

Yes, no 3-“letter”-updates available any more for downloading:

I understand it the same way: when you are already on U3, this upgrade-issue should be gone. But I recommend you to be very careful when updating to u3b, maybe some ugly but is still in.

Well said, unfortunately 7.0 has really not been a smooth drive for anyone yet!

All we need now is another CBT regression and it’ll be the shakiest release ever!

NOOOOOOO :anguished::scream:

Means we need the real CBT: Continuous Backup Testing!

YES :joy:

There is also a FAQ-article for vSphere 7.0 Update 3, Update 3a & Update 3b

BTW: vCenter 7.0 U3b is also removed for download!

:scream:

What’s the matter with you VMware?

This was quite the read today.  Saw it in the vExpert slack as well.  Hope they get it fixed soon.
