We have several ESX 3.0.0 and ESX 3.0.1 VI3 hosts.

I need to upgrade them to 3.0.3 so that I can upgrade my VC 2.0 server to VC 2.5

Is there a simple upgrade procedure with a item to download ? or do I have to do this in stages ?

Thanks

I'm affraid you will need to do this manually until you are in v3.5 where you can get VMware Update Manager scan and update hosts and VMs. I'm not aware of a third party software that can do this.
How many hosts does you have?
Remember to VMotion out your VMs and put in maintenance mode your ESX host before you start the upgrade process. After testing the ESX stability, you can VMtion back in those VMs (...and everybody happy).

I plan to move the guests by shutting down first and migrating without vmotion
