We have reproduced the issues: 1418949, 1419059 and 1419062, and verified the fixes in the patch bz1418949.
Tomorrow we're going to review it with other team to see if any impacted areas should be tested, and what kind of regression testing is needed.
Could you send us the diff file of the source code change in this patch? So that we could evaluate which might be impacted and should be tested.
Thank you very much!
You've already got it. Unpack the SRPM and examine the source
$ echo "%_topdir $HOME/rpmbuild" > ~/.rpmmacros
$ rpm -ivh open-vm-tools-10.0.5-4.el7_3.src.rpm
$ cd rpmbuild/
and examine SPECS/open-vm-tools.spec and SOURCES/*

Thanks, will look at it.
verify this bug with RHEL7.3 guest on ESXi 6.0 host.
As this bug mentioned in comments 7, QE from vmware had verified this bug,
so we did some sanity test with open-vm-tools-10.0.5-4.el7_3.x86_64.rpm and open-vm-tools-desktop-10.0.5-4.el7_3.x86_64.rpm,no issue found.
It is pass with sanity test.
The bug related host version: ESXi 6.0
The bug related guest version: kernel 3.10.0-514.6.1.el7.x86_64
The test result: Verified
We (VMware GOSV QE) also have done the verification for this bug.
Guest:RHEL7.3 + the provided open-vm-tools-10.0.5-4.el7_3.x86_64.rpm and open-vm-tools-desktop-10.0.5-4.el7_3.x86_64.rpm
1. Checked QuiesceSnapshot With Docker container running;
2. Several other positive and negative testings for QuiesceSnapshot;
3. Checked whether all the necessary files and services are present.
All the testings are Pass.
