ESXi 6.0 hosts ‘No host data available’

For months now many vSphere 6.0 users have had no hardware info populated from their ESXi 6.0 hosts

The good news now is this has a patch. ESXi-6.0.0-20180704001-standard contains the following little nugget of goodness in the patch notes:

  • System identification information consists of asset tags, service tags, and OEM strings. In earlier releases, this information comes from the Common Information Model (CIM) service, but in ESXi600-201807401, it comes directly from the SMBIOS.

If you have been suffering this bug for many months this should be included in your next patching round.
