This patch updates esx-base, vsan, esx-tboot and vsanhealth VIBs to resolve the following issues:

  • PR 2209189: Heavy I/Os issued to a snapshot virtual machine using the SEsparse format might cause guest OS file system inconsistencies

    Heavy I/Os issued to a snapshot virtual machine using the SEsparse format might cause guest OS file system inconsistencies, or data inconsistencies in applications.

    This issue is resolved in this release.

  • PR 2206053: A disk group with deduplication enabled might be marked as in permanent disk error with disk reporting out of space, even though the group has free blocks

    The vSAN deduplication engine maintains a free block count per disk in deduplication-enabled disk groups to determine the block allocation for write requests. In some cases, the value of the free block count for a given disk might underflow. This might fail a placement by the deduplication engine on that disk, because the block count is not accurate. As a result, the deduplication engine might mark the entire disk group as out of space, even though other disks in the group might have free blocks.

    This issue is resolved in this release.
