Ah, i must click on the bug to get a comment with the workaround. Thanks!

This error i passed now, but not i got a other error: - ERROR - Run 'vsish -pe get /storage/scsifw/devices//stats |grep commands' on vmsrv01 failed, error=1

Will this command be executed on the ESXi host? On the host i get:

[root@vmsrv01:~] vsish -pe get /storage/scsifw/devices//stats
