    Never trust an admin that doesn’t test prior to moving into production with a new release anyway……Even better is to wait until the revision has matured with no major issues.

    I’m considering waiting a month or two. i would have thought VMware would have caught the problem with Update 2 prior to release….

    I have an ESX 3.5 test box that I use to test all the patches on and when I installed Update 3 it wouldn’t allow me to use any of the VMs or even import a Virtual Appliance into it. I did an upgrade first and when that didn’t work I went back in and performed an installation and that didn’t work either. It’s still dead in the water. The error I’m getting is:

    Unable to access file. [vmtest]NewVMName/NewVMName.vmx

    Anyone else had any problems?
