The notes specify that "There was a problem in the packet re-injection code for the ICMP and UDP IPv6 packets for outbound traffic. As a result, outbound IPv6 traffic for ICMP and UDP protocols could experience packet drops."
Presumably this means that only IPv6 traffic for ICMP and UDP connections are effected. This doesn't really seem to be the case. What actually is effected by the bug? What packets are being dropped?
I notice that VMware Tools 11.0.6 is out though no mention of a fix nor any acknowledgement that it's a known issue.. which seems a bit sneaky to me!
Just installed VMware Tools 11.1 (was released yesterday) and am still seeing dropped pings. Not seeing any mention of the issue in resolved bugs or known bugs in the 11.1 release notes.
Same for me. VMware Tools 11.1 has the same issue like the versions before.
Has anyone tried the VMware tools from June 18 that list a fix for this issue? We have installed it based on this issue and are beginning to test but wanted to see if anyone else had feedback on the issue.
I have a desktop pool with VMware tools 11.1.1 that I am testing. From what I have seen so far the dropped packets issue has been fixed.
