Updating VMWare hosts in a local storage environment
Posted on 2013-05-24
I have several small business clients that are setup with VMWare Essentials on 2-3 servers but are using local storage on each (no shared storage so no vmotion or HA).
What is the best/easiest way to deploy VMWare patches to these hosts? Especially since you cannot migrate Vcenter.
I know I have the option of waiting for a new VMWare iso to be released which has the patches slipstreamed but I was hoping for a way to deploy the patches easily without doing the inplace upgrade.
All of my clients are VMware 5.0 or 5.1.
