Product content updates require appliance restart
This TKU release contains product content additions. When product content is added, the appliance is restarted as part of the update. You are given the opportunity to prevent the restart, though if you do so, none of the knowledge content will be installed.
Transport Layer Security (TLS) Certificates
Please be aware that fix for the defect "Ubuntu Servers are discovered as VMware vCenter Appliance" (DRDC1-16035) which was introduced in TKU Jan 2021 may cause the host identity change, i.e., host duplicates may appear in case your Ubuntu server had been previously discovered as VMware vCenter Appliance.
Important Note for Discovery 20.02 (12.0) Customers Only
