VMWare ESX 3.5u2 Errors

VMWare has an important announcement if you are using VMWare ESX 3.5u2: This particular version will "expire" today (August 12th). If you restart the server, or move a virtual machine, you will get an error and you will not be able to start up the machine or use VMotion.

In short: If you use this exact version of VMWare ESX: Don't touch it until you hear from VMware about a solution. As a work around, you can change the system time to a date before Aug. 12th and turn off NTP.

(thanks to a number of readers who alerted us about this! And thanks to all the Australian VMware users who of course ran into this first)
