CHR v6.42 with ESXI

According to release notes, starting v.6.42 CHR supports open-vm-tools:

*) chr - added "open-vm-tools" on VMware installations;

Well, after the software upgrade and restart, indeed, it looks like vm-tools feature-set is supported, but also now I've got notification from ESXI with the text below:

"The configured guest OS (Other (64-bit)) for this virtual machine does not match the guest that is currently running (Other 3.x or later Linux (64-bit)). You should specify the correct guest OS to allow for guest-specific optimizations"

and of course, VMWare offers me to change VM guest OS software version and type to resolve the issue.

This CHR installed a year ago in line with the documentation on wiki ( ... stallation) where recommended OS type was "Other 64-bits".

So, what should I do next to resolve the issue and remove annoying notification from ESXI web interface?

Thanks in advance!

I changed the Guest OS to "Other 3.x or later Linux (64-bit)" in ESXI and the message dissapeared.
