Resolved Issue

  • By default, the Isolation Response feature in an ESXi host with enabled VMware vSphere High Availability (vSphere HA) is disabled. When the Isolation Response feature is enabled, a virtual machine port, which is connected to an NSX-T logical switch, might be blocked after a vSphere HA failover.
  • You might not be able to locate and turn on the LED for disks under a lsi-msgpt3 controller using a lsi-msgpt3 async driver. This fix updates the lsu-lsi-lsi-msgpt3-plugin to work with the inbox and async lsi-msgpt3 drivers.
  • You might not be able to locate and turn on the LED for disks under a lsi-msgpt35 controller. This fix introduces a new lsu-lsi-drivers-plugin which works with lsi-msgpt35 async drivers, because the inbox driver version is too low to support the storelib.
