This my first ESX host installtion. Everything went well as far as the normal operation of the host. I was able to create a new VM and have full connectivity. But, here's my issue ..
I was trying to update ESX 3.0.2 to update 1
- I downloaded the update
- used winSPC to transfer the .tar.gz file to one of my datastores (i have 2 SAS drives)
- extracted the file using the tar xvzf switch, and cd'ed to the new directory
- used the command esxupdate update, and got the this error
"INFO: No repository URL specified, going with file:/vmfs/volumes/47488d7
ERROR: Invalid repository at file:/vmfs/volumes/47488d7
18/: Cannot find descriptor.xml
INFO: Make sure you have file: or http
: prepended to the URL."
I tried using a different datastore, but got the same error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
