Thanks to Alex S for the heads up…VMWare licensing bug blacks out virtual servers (here)
“August 12, 2008 (Computerworld) A bug in VMware Inc.‘s newest software update has blocked corporate users from starting their virtualized servers today, according to reports filed by users in the U.S. and elsewhere.
“Updated product bits with correct licensing will be made available for download as soon as possible,” the spokesman said, adding in a follow-up e-mail that VMware expects to have a patch available later Tuesday.”
Wow! Just when you thought patch Tuesday couldn’t get any worse.
