Cisco UCS and VMware vSphere 5.1 Support

UPDATE: On Sep 18th Cisco released 2.0(4a), which you can download from Cisco support.

For those of you that are Cisco UCS customers, word on the street is that a forthcoming firmware update 2.0(4) will be required for official vSphere 5.1 support. Cisco should have the updated firmware out by the end of September or early October. As for a Cisco UCS customized ESXi 5.1 installation media, that may be towards the end of October.
