FYI: LM can trigger ESXi 6.5 hostd to crash


I just got done working with VMware support on an issue where our ESXi 6.5 hostd process would crash during a booting phase.  We eventually traced it back to a bug in some vSAN code that LM monitoring is polling..  It doesn't matter if you're running vSAN in your environment or not.  Our work around has been to disable host level monitoring in LM for our ESXi hosts for now and it's been stable ever since.

The expected fix is scheduled for release in Q3 2018 from VMware.
