View crashing hostd on ESXi hosts

Anyone experienced View 7.1 causing hostd to crash on ESXi 6.5 hosts?   It seems to occur when new VMs are provisioned.

Can you share the section of the hostd log that makes you think view is causing the crashing?

It's more of a theory at this point. I have an SR opened regarding the issue, but the engineer has only stated that it's a known issue and that I need to install update 2...which is doesn't sound feasible since it was just released a few weeks ago.  He refuses to provide any details on the root cause.  It seems to only occur when new VMs are provisioned.

I identified the source of the issue.  When View initiates space reclamation against VMs on ESXi 6.5 VMFS 6 volumes, it crashes hostd.  I disabled space reclamation on the desktop pools, and the crashes stopped.
