VMware ESXi 6.5.0 Patch History

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/21

Interesting way to keep your ESXi rug up to date:

[WayBack] Keep track of VMware ESXi patches, subscribe by RSS, Twitter and E-Mail! – Brought to you by @VFrontDe: VMware ESXi 6.5.0 Patch History.

There is an RSS feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/Esxi650PatchTracker and in depth information at [WayBackVMware ESXi Patch Tracker – Help.

Clicking on the link next to Imageprofile will popup a screen with instructions how to upgrade your ESXi box to that level, for instance:

# Cut and paste these commands into an ESXi shell to update your host with this Imageprofile
# See the Help page for more instructions
#
esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient
esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.5.0-20170702001-standard \
-d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml
esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e false -r httpClient
#
# Reboot to complete the upgrade

I wish there was a similar thing for [WayBackESXi Embedded Host Client as I could not find any of the esxui VIB files mentioned there at esxui site:https://esxi-patches.v-front.de.

By the time you read this I really hope these two esxui things have been fixed:
