Hello,

We have IBM x3650 M2 servers running ESX 4 and ESXi 4.

How do I run the IBM UpdateExpress utility on these servers to update the firmware/drivers?

I've read the instructions from:
http://www-947.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-5079722&brandind=5000016
but it's still not clear to me on the exact procedure. I'm looking for detailed steps.

Is there a GUI option or just the CLI?
