By checking this patch for available image profiles using bellow command, you will find four (4) image profiles which is different from previous update I posted about.
esxcli software sources profile list -d /vmfs/volumes/NFS - vHosts/VMware/Updates/update-from-esxi5.0-5.0_update01.zip
By checking “Release Note” via this link, you can see detail of each image profile just like below.
Patch Release ESXi50-Update01 contains the following image profiles:
Patch Release ESXi50-Update01 Security-only contains the following image profiles:
If you want to update whole system select normal image profile (line 1) and if you just want to apply security patches select image profiles which ended with “s” (line 2) like below.
esxcli software profile update -d /vmfs/volumes/NFS - vHosts/VMware/Updates/update-from-esxi5.0-5.0_update01.zip -p ESXi-5.0.0-20120302001-standard esxcli software profile update -d /vmfs/volumes/NFS - vHosts/VMware/Updates/update-from-esxi5.0-5.0_update01.zip -p ESXi-5.0.0-20120302001s-standard
After applying new released patch and rebooting the host, you will not see any “Update 1” in DCUI or near the host version in vSphere client (not like in vSphere 4.x) but the build version would be change to “623860” 😉
Update (Mar 18):
If you want to directly download the patch file to the ESXi host and then applying it, you can check this link on “Le carnet technique de Poirsouille” site by “Vilbrekin“.
Update (Mar 22):
I made a page for updating “VMware vCenter 5.0” to “VMware vCenter 5.0 Update 1” as well which can be checked using this link.
Update (Mar 23):
I made another post about “VIBs Skipped” which you may see during updating your host(s).
