VMware ESX Server 2.0.1 Driver Update for Internet Explorer 6
This patch includes a new update for the VMware Management Interface problem on the Startup profile page.
Under some circumstances, when using Internet Explorer 6, the PCI information for specific devices can trigger an error. This prevents you from assigning the device to virtual machines.
This problem can occur when you have six or more PCI devices to be configured on the Startup profile page and the PCI bus value for one or more of these devices is greater than 19 and you are using Internet Explorer 6.
A work-around for this issue is available. You can use the command line interface vmkpcidivy, or use Netscape 7.
This update addresses the issue for Internet Explorer 6 users. The change only affects the management interface. The script query.js, which is utilized by the management interface to assign data devices to the service console or to virtual machines, will be replaced.
