When 6.5.4.6 for NSv?

Is 6.5.4.6 firmware coming soon to the ESXi NSv range? The latest is 6.5.4.4 but this has been very buggy on physical appliances. I'm in the process of installing a new NSv to production and I'd much rather go straight to 6.5.4.6 than to push my luck and do the switchover to production on 6.5.4.4.

    Hi,

    may i ask what problems you see with 6.5.4.4 on physical appliances ?

    For example the inability to send email with attachments from Outlook and to send files with WeTransfer. These are also a problem with 6.5.4.5 but seem to be fixed in 6.5.4.6. This is without having DPI-SSL even turned on, might have something to do with SSL Control because 6.5.4.6 had something fixed relating to that.

    These are just the ones I saw very quickly after updating, others have seen much more. There's a whole thread about various issues over at Spiceworks.

    Hey @SonicAdmin80

    We turned off DPI-SSL Content Filtering tick box to workaround the DPI-SSL issues with 6.5.4.5 as I recall.

    6.5.4.6 seems better (we have it on all our Gen6 TZ's) but 2/3 NSa's failed and had to be rolled back. Hotfix now available (untested by us). Let me know if you want the details.


    Kindly, Steph.

  • Thanks for the info. Luckily 6.5.4.4 for NSv doesn't seem to have the same problems as the version for physical appliances. I've run one NSv with 6.5.4.4 for a few weeks without problems.
