I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

See my EE Article, step by step tutorial with screenshots

HOW TO: Update (Patch) VMware ESXi 6.0.0 GA to ESXi 6.0.0b with VMware Update Manager (VUM)

The only difference being, is this article shows how to update to 6.0.0b, all you need to do is create a new baseline using the latest available updates for ESXi 6.0. e.g. substitute latest update ESXi-6.0.0-20180104001-standard (Build 7504637) issues on the 9th Jan 2018.

BUT, make sure you have also updated any firmware due on your hosts, if patching for Meltdown and Spectre, and also be prepared for performance issues maybe... e.g. less performance after update!
