APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Old ESX administration code doesn't support windows 2012
operating system. But as a new  OS w2012 is planned to support
and during the test, it is found that an OS version check inside
ESX administration code blocked administration code from running
on 2012 system.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE54469 :
-----------------------------
Add the WINDOWS_VERSION_SERVER_2012 in the administration code
so that the OS version check can allow administration code
running on windows server 2012.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE54469 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.
