VMware NSX 6.2.4 released

So after the huge cock-up with 6.2.3, VMware have turned around a new version of NSX in a matter of weeks to fix all the bugs!

Of major concern was the whole HA issue that meant DLR nodes got stuck in a ‘split-brain’ mode after 24 days of operations – and every 24 days after that! It also didn’t help that the previous version was causing VMs to lose network connectivity if the pMAC of the DLR was the MAC address in the default gateway.

Anyways, hopefully all the bugs have been ironed out and the new release is more stable!

Release Notes can be found here.

For some of my customers, the release of 6.2.4 brings back the vShield Endpoint management support which is great given vCNS and vShield Manager is going end of general support on the 19th Sept!
