posted by | Leave a comment

If you haven’t been notified about patches, you can check the ESX Patch update site to get the latest patch info.Patches will be either for security reasons, critical bug fix issues, or general system bugs.The release date for VMware ESX 3.5 is not available yet.The only existing 3rd party ESX patch application program I have seen is VMTS Patch Manager.If you have version 4.1 or later of the v Sphere client installed, you don't have to removed those clients prior to the 4.0 client installation.Ensure that you check the option to install the HUU.For early versions of the 4.0 client select a Custom installation to choose the HUU option.Once you have the 4.0 client installed, go to the VMware program group and start the HUU.

Click Scan For Patches and enter appropriate credentials for your host.While there may be better tools in the future, currently, esxupdate is the most popular tool used today.In this article, you will learn how to apply patches using esxupdate.Hosts managed with any version of v Center can be patched with Update Manager, but for stand alone hosts the alteratives are the v CLI and Power CLI.However, you can still use the HUU from the v Sphere 4.0 client installation to patch your ESXi hosts.

Once the patch process has completed, the host is rebooted.
