I installed the latest 6.5u1 update on an external esx server. After we upgraded, we noticed a lot of our Ubuntu servers freeze when they boot. I tried removing the open-vm tool, turned off video acceleration, etc. Nothing useful. Does anyone have any other tips to help bring our server back online?
My test farm is just upgraded to 6.5.U2.
Just powered on two Ubuntu Servers
Both booted fine.
What versions are your servers?
Where do they hang?
Have you tried a fresh build?
Any unusual hardware?
