As you probably are aware, Intel disclosed a CPU Speculative-Execution vulnerability (called L1 Terminal Fault) on August 14, 2018. Like many others who work with VMware vSphere environments, I read up on the remediation steps (KB 55683) so I could patch my small lab environment. For my vCenter, I was excited to use the VAMI Update functionality for the first time!
I logged into the Virtual Appliance Management Interface (or VAMI) by pointing my web browser at the IP of my vCenter Server Appliance using port 5480 (for example: https://myvcenter.lab.net:5480) and navigated to the Update tab. I hit the Check Updates button with the option to check the CD ROM and URL; but to my confusion no updates appeared in the list.
I double-checked KB 2143838 which is the list of vCenter Server build numbers to ensure a new release was available. Sure enough – vCenter Server 6.7.0d was released on 8-14-2018.
