MORE QUALITY ISSUES FOR VMWARE...

Virtualization Nation,

Shortly on the heels of their latest vSphere 5.0 release, VMware has already recalled one of their new features, telling people to disable it manually and developing a patch to disable the feature. This is the latest in a long string of QA SNAFUs for VMware. In this latest incident, VMware enables a new feature that causes the following symptoms:

  • When performing a Storage vMotion or a Virtual Machine Snapshot you experience poor system performance.
  • A Storage vMotion or Virtual Machine Snapshot fails or times out

Yes, that’s right. Your Storage VMotion or VM Snapshot may just FAIL.

I’ve included the full VMware KB below and a blog post covering the issue as well.

  • "People who live in glass houses should not throw stones."

    This blog post is in poor taste; has Microsoft never made a mistake, had a bug or recalled a feature?  Calling out your competitors mistakes only insinuates that they have a superior product; reminds me of a common strategy in politics.  Good business is not built on bashing your competitors, but elevating your own product.

  • No one says that Microsoft did not make any mistakes. And yes we also had features recalled, that is no secret.

    I never said that VMWare has bad products. All i am saying is that there is a current issue referring to their offical knowledge base.
