ESX 4.1 - how to patch with esxupdate
Posted on 2011-09-27
We have an ESX host at version 4.1, build 348481.
We read about patches ESX410-201104001.zip and ESX410-201107001.zip.
We read about the vCenter Update Manager plug-in for ESX 3.5, but can't seem to find it for version 4. Then we read about a vCenter Update Manager that requires an entire database to support it, which leads us to believe it is no longer a plug-in.
We downloaded the zip files but we are stuck trying to use the esxupdate command line tool. I have the ESX 4.1 Patch Management Guide in front of me, but I can't seem to get it to work.
Can anyone guide me through this process?
