I wrote about the latest CBT issue (November edition) a couple of days ago, and as promised by VMware a patch has been released.
Original issue – KB 2136854
Patch to resolve the issue – ESXi600-201511001 (2137545)
Note: Before applying this patch on HP Proliant Gen 9 servers, see VMware ESXi 6.0 host fails to detect local disk after patching or applying Update 1 on HP Proliant Gen 9 servers (2120539).
Cheers VMware, lets hope this is the last of the CBT issues!!!
Firmware WB.15.18.0007 resolves the issue, see below
A colleague of mine found an issue with the latest HP 2920 switch firmware.
If you create VLANs using the CLI Menu, the switch reboots and the configuration is not saved.
We have reported this to HP, but is currently being treated as a non critical issue as when creating a VLAN via the web interface or native CLI, the issue doesn’t happen.
We have also noticed on this firmware the switch seems to be less responsive. Luckily we had a few units in stock that we could replicate this issue on, and can confirm downgrading to the previous firmware version removes the issue.
A quick cheers to my colleague Marco for finding and researching this issue.
Switch: HP 2920-48G-POE+
Primary Image : 12852982 08/12/15 WB.15.18.0006
Software revision : WB.15.18.0006

Hopefully HP will release a fix for this firmware soon, as mentioned we have recreated this issue in production and test.

So today I was installing VMware Horizon View Composer on my Server 2012 R2 vCenter machine, where the SQL database is also local to this machine.
And I came across the below error,
"Error 1920, Service VMware Horizon View Composer (svid) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start the system service"
Which I something I’ve dealt with before, but I must admit I forgot the fix, and was looking into the following area’s;
- Check account is Administrator and has “Log on as a Service” right
- Check there is no pending restarts
- Check ODBC is set up correctly and gives a successful message when testing
