Morning all,
 

This slipped under my radar on Friday, VMware have fixed some huge bugs such as inability to enable HA on ESXi U3 hosts in this release. But they’ve also pulled the original U3 update due to issues with failing rollup upgrades! But you first need to patch vCenter before upgrading to ESXi U3b

… VMware removed U3 for ESXi completely for downloading:

Better this way :)

They just released ESXi 7.0 Update 3c:

I'm very curious to see what'll break this time. Unfortunately out install is still stuck on 7.0U3b, but I'll put off updating for now since I'm not having any downtime generating issues currently and don't want to go into another update just to get blindsided by more issues that do affect my uptime.

 

Anyone brave enough to update and to share their experience?
