Hi,

I want to download the recent HPE VMware 6.5U1 ESX image but I get everytime the message "this download is no longer available".

Same for HPE VMware 6.5

That's likely one of the reasons why all HPE images which contain the net-bnx2x_2.713.30 driver were removed from the download section.

That's interesting. I downloaded the current images just a few days ago.

I did open a support case with HPE to find out what's the reason for this, and will update this thread once I get feedback.

Thanks André,

maybe it's regarding the issue with PSOD in 6.5U1 --> https://communities.vmware.com/thread/570328?start=15&tstart=0

This morning I could see two download options for HPE 6.5 and & 6.5U1. Now the 6.5U1 disappeared.

I just got a call from HPE support. They removed the images by intention, and are working with VMware to provide new, updated images.

From what I understood, HPE plans to release an Advisory regarding this later today.

Hello,

I download it few days ago. I already install on my hosts DL360 Gen8 and Gen9 without problem. If you need it I can send you link for download.

But maybe better wait new image.

Bye

Just a quick update: The VMware download site now shows:

Note: This image has been removed due to a critical issues which will be fixed and the new images will be re-uploaded by 06-Oct-2017.
