These looks like all SATA drives. I'd rarey buy those for the enterprise, pay the extra for NLSAS.

Re: I love how a disk firmware problem requires a UCS manager update!
Its all bollocks huh, people complained of too many different fw to track and monitor, so they create one big pack. A tiny update requires patching the whole system. It's the same as the Microsoft monthly rollups, i think its over a 1TB now for Win10/Server2016.
Re: Still no patches for...
I'm glad there's no patches for esxi. Vmware's QA has been terrible the last couple of years, there's going to be a ton of bugs going forward. I bet they don't have a massive team of engineers that deal with cpu functionality anymore as that core functionality hasn't changed for many years.
Re: Don't panic, "No exploit code has been released."
I agree with this guy. One shouldn't worry (give a shit) about things that are totally out of ones control to fix, and for 99.99% of IT professionals this issue is something none of us can fix.
Saying that, i give a shit because it means more patching, more bugs, more crashes, worse performance - more wasting time on infrastructure when we could be doing stuff that actually adds value.
Not just AV
It's not only AV that it breaks. Applying this update will break other applications.
We've had reports already, Numecent’s CloudPaging solution https://www.numecent.com/cloudpaging/ stops working.
With such a fundamental change to how Windows works, there will no doubt be many applications that fail and will need updating. This is why this patch needs the reg edit before it installs, as MS know this could potentially break loads of stuff.
