If you are currently running NSX for vSphere 6.1 you will be happy to hear that that NSX 6.1.2 for vSphere has been released. In it is a number of bug fixes that I am particularly happy about. One fix in particular that I am very happy to see is:
vNICs get ejected because of insufficient ESXi heap memory – I ran into this in the MoaC Lab and of course it took some time to track down and get resolved. Aside from being a difficult bug to diagnose it caused secondary issues that were just a pain. So glad to see this one is taken care of.
Poodle Vulnerability – This release includes an API call that you can use to diable SSL v3 on specified NSX Edges.
OpenSSL – Has been upgraded to the 101j release
UI Fixes – Not yet sure which ones.
Security Group Parallel Creation – has been added. This should help in the over time it takes to deploy App Services in vRealize Automation.
VPN Fixes – I’m not sure on what these fixes are, but I hope there is a fix for OSPF updates over Layer2 VPN. I will surely let you know once I find out.
There is more details on the the NSX for vSphere 6.1.2 release in the release notes.
