esxi update manager

Hi Experts,

I want to create a baseline for my esxi hosts.
But when I look to the patches also esx patches in the list.
I cannot see the esxi 4.1 patches or is it called esx embedded ?

yes, ESXi is the same as embeddedesx in Update Manager.

You don't have to create your own baselines if you haven't deleted them already.  Update Manager will apply only the applicable patches whether your hosts are ESX or ESXi.  Even if you don't want all of the available patches for your host type, when you go to remediate you can unselect any patches you don't want installed at that time.
no esxi is the free version 4.1 is called vSphere 4.1 so if you web update is finding esx embedded
is a different version thats bought with esx already installed

esx i 4.1 and vSphere 4.1 are the same thge only difference is the license
