Its not just Apple’s TV that seems to be experiencing problems with updates from Apple this week. Reports are not surfacing that users of Apple’s Xserves are also experiencing a few issues after the latest 10.6.8 update.
Even though Apple has discontinued the Xserve line of systems updates are still being rolled out the same as other Apples OS X devices. But users seems to be experiencing problems with the Mac OS X Server-exclusive hardware monitoring daemon called hwmond.
The hwmond daemon seems to consume nearly 100 percent of the processing power within the Xserve for some users. The issue seems to effecting users who have installed the combo update or the delta update, which is download by the system update application.
If you are experiencing the problem jump over to the Apple Support Communites for more advice.
