VMware vSphere 4.0u2, VMware vCenter 4.0u2, Update Manager 4.0u2 and VMware Data Recovery 1.2 released

Yesterday VMware released update 2 for it’s vSphere 4.0 platform.

This release  includes:

  • ESX/ESXi 4.0 update 2
  • vCenter Server 4.0 update 2
  • vCenter Update Manager 4 Update 2
  • VMWare Data Recovery 1.2

There are no new features in ESX/ESXi and vCenter.

The update for ESX/ESXi primarily introduces additional hardware support, in particular FT support for Intel Xeon 34xx, Xeon56xx and Core i3/i5 CPUs.

The update for vCenter introduces environment customization for additional guest operating systems: the most notable for me are SLES 11, RedHat 4.8, 5.4, 5.5 and Debian 5.0

The update for Update Manager improve reliability of operations on hosts in low bandwitdh/lossy networks.

The most interesting update is VDR 1.2. Here there are new features:

  • File Level Restore now available to use in linux
  • Up to 10 Data Recovery backup appliance for each vCenter
  • Support for fast switching among Data Recovery backup appliances.
  • Miscellaneous vSphere Client Plug-In user interface enhancements

The major enhancement (for my use) is the support for FRL in linux!
