VMware releases VMware vCenter Server 5.1 Update 1a. Resolves AD authentication issue.

VMware released Update 1a of VMware vCenter Server 5.1.

vCenter Server 5.1 Update 1 has  been removed from the VMware download   site due to issues encountered when  logging in to  vCenter Server 5.1 Update 1 with domain credentials. See the alert about Update 1 here.

vCenter Server 5.1 Update  1 is replaced by vCenter Server 5.1   Update 1A, which is functionally identical  to vCenter Server 5.1   Update 1A resolves  the issue encountered  when logging in to  vCenter Server 5.1 Update 1  in a set up where the vCenter Server login domain user account is associated with a large   number of domain groups and multiple domains are configured as SSO   identity sources. See KB 2050941 and the Resolved Issues section of the release notes for more information.

Customers are urged to read the README included with the new update before they apply the update.

release notes of VMware vCenter Server 5.1 Update 1a are here.
