Most of our clients are now waiting for the Christmas Period to apply, with scheduled downtime.

We've done, 10 sites, and not noticed any issues at present.....

Well, that could have gone better.  Remediation finished and the hypervisor never came back up.  Black screen after several minutes, so I reset it.  VMware Hypervisor Recovery screen now shows, but that's it.

I'll just reinstall 6.7 on this host and bring it up to current patch level, unless anyone has any suggestions.

Cool.  Wasn't bad enough that the Esxi host was gone.  Chose the upgrade option and it is back.
