Cisco Custom ISO for ESXi 6.7 U3 Install CD

When will the Cisco Custom ISO for ESXi 6.7 U3 Install CD be ready?  I've looked on VMware's site and it's not available.  Vmware told me to ask Cisco and Cisco told me to ask VMware.  I'm going in circles.

The link has arrived on the MyVMWare downloads page for Cisco Custom ESXi 6.7 U3, but it takes you to a broken page.

 

This link is now working!

Hello,

I will send out an inquiry, internally. If you do not hear from me, I never got a response.

Historically, this is around 30-60 days after VMware releases it initially.

There is a certain amount of testing with Cisco added drivers that has to occur at Cisco, after which it is submitted to VMware.

I'm sure VMware does a certain amount of testing after this, prior to actually posting.

I think the GA release hit around Aug 20, so I would expect to see it posted maybe end of September/Early October.

 

While the Custom Images tend to have the latest drivers, you will always want to check the UCS HCL tool to make sure you have matching drivers for your firmware level you are on.

There is a problem with the VMware site.

I've hit some temporary maintenance messages when trying to download from their site today.

I was finally able to get it from the vmWare site under the vHorizon section. Already pushed to 3 hosts and it seems solid.

Just a quick note to remind everyone that in 6.7U3 you might get a lot of "Sensor -1" alarms which flood the system.

What kind of server are you booting with?  Is this some sort of appliance (i.e. ISE or security appliance)?
