ESXi 6.0 and 6.5 hosts no responding issue!

The smartd service  can leads to ESXi 6.0 or 6.5 hosts no responding due to out of memory. I see that issue on ESXi 6.0 U2 and U3 both. I would recommend stay on  ESXi 5.5 U3 at this moment.

We do see the issue persist even after stop smartd service.

Windows 2016 is not available in OS option when create virtual machine

Just noticed a gap here. If your  ESXi host is 5.5 Update 2 or earlier version, you are not able to choose ‘Windows Server 2016’ as operating system  when  you create virtual  machine. It’s addressed in  KB https://kb.vmware.com/kb/2132789.
