An error occurred during operation: CheckAndAllocateCache

Not the first time  I see the following error:  An error occurred during operation: CheckAndAllocateCache when performing fresh Vsphere host update using Host Update Utility. You should ignore the error and rescan the host and patch the host again. Sometimes it works with the second try, sometimes, you have to reboot the box and it will work.

A complete log is attached below:

Patching 10.10.0.2

The patch operation has failed with this error: An error occurred during operation: CheckAndAllocateCache

Remember not to update Virtual Center managed ESXi servers using Host Update Utility. Host Update Utility can be used to patch/update stand alone ESXi servers.
