Issues resolved in vCenter Server 6.5 Update 1b

Multiple issues are resolved for Photon OS. Apache Struts is updated to version 2.5.13 and Ruby is updated to version 2.4.0-5. Complete list of security issues patched is listed here.

In some cases, a full clone or a cold migration between VMware vSphere on-premises and VMware Cloud on AWS could timeout.

A vCenter Server Appliance configured with vCenter HA might fail after an upgrade to 6.5 Update 1. Root cause for the failure is the renaming of the appliance hostname being changed to the default localhost.localdomain.

vCenter Server Content Library service might fail to start after an upgrade due to a firstboot failure.
