Did you get a fix because I have same issue

Please ignore this alert, you can refresh you browser as well.

 

error will disappear.

It's just a warning by ESXi that it doesn't know what operating system the device is, so it can't do nice things such as provide it with tools, etc. like it would for a Windows Server.

It does not affect the functionality of the device and the warning can be safely ignored.

This seems to be related: Cisco Bug: CSCvm15950 - Expressway/VCS OVA Presents as Other (32-Bit) under Guest OS of ESXi https://quickview.cloudapps.cisco.com/quickview/bug/CSCvm15950

I confirm this.  Cisco has known of this issue in Expressway 12.5.9 as well.
