hi again.  new issue, just tried to update build version from 469512 to build 623860 on ESXi Update Manager.  do I need to create a new baseline and it is using a host patch method, not host upgrade method?

    Accepted Solution

    its a patch not an upgrade, and there should be a much later build 7....

    yes, baseline, host patch.
