I installed the latest version of this patch in the latest version of ESX 5.1, it worked great and allowed me to spin up a Mac OS virtual machine in my ESX environment. After I installed it, I am unable to vMotion any virtual machines to this host. To test, I uninstalled it and vMotion began to work. My goal is to patch one host at a time without occurring any downtime to the virtual machines. This occurred when my hosts were on different versions. I upgraded all hosts to the latest and greatest for 5.1 and I still encounter the same issue. I can vMotion a few servers to this host with the unlocker installed, but after that vMotion breaks. The error I get is Operation timed out. It gets to 14%, Migrating active state of virtual machine. I am running VMware ESX Enterprise Plus 5.1.1157734. Any ideas why vMotion stops working with this patch installed?
The unlocked is only really working for standalone ESXi and there are known issues with vCenter including vMotion problems. I would post in the forum thread for ESXi and ask the folks there for advice -esxi-5-mac-os-x-unlocker/
Version 1.3.0 posted with new method of running the patcher on ESXi. Should fix the issues when vCenter code added to the ESXi host. Please carefully read the readme.txt file. You will need to remove the previous unlocker for this to work correctly. In addition you must have a scratch partition available on the ESXi host.
Updated 10th May 2012New version 1.1.0 released. Updated 18th December 2011There have been several reports that there are problems using this with vCenter. Please be aware the work really was only for standalone ESXi. Use at your own risk as we are obviously not able to guarantee anything with these patches.Updated 7th December 2011Updated for Workstation 8.0.1 and Fusion 4.1.0 Updated 11th November 2011Minor update for Windows Workstation to fix batch file errors. Updated 4th November 2011New unlocker which can do all the current VMware products. Please see the readme copied here.Mac Son of Knife will be running another thread, =267339, to help with running Mac OS X on this unlocker. This thread will be for updates and issues with the unlocking process only.
