As mentioned in a recent post, a problem in the tools 10.3.0 bundled VMXNET3 driver could cause host PSODs and connectivity issues. As of September 12th, VMware Tools 10.3.2 is now available, which corrects this issue.
The problematic driver was version 126.96.36.199 in tools 10.3.0. According to the release notes, it has been replaced with version 188.8.131.52. In addition to this fix, there are four resolved issues listed as well.
VMware mentions the following in the 10.3.2 release notes:
“Note: VMware Tools 10.3.0 is deprecated due to a VMXNET3 driver related issue. For more information, see KB 57796. Install VMware Tools 10.3.2, or VMware Tools 10.2.5 or an earlier version of VMware Tools.”
Kudos to the VMware engineering teams for getting 10.3.2 released so quickly after the discovery of the problem!
