Install HP ESXi Offline Bundle for VMware ESXi 4.1

Prerequisites

  • vSphere Command-Line Interface (vSphere CLI) on a Microsoft Windows computer.
  • HP ESXi bundle zip file (e.g. hp-esxi4.1uX-bundle-1.0a.zip)

Procedure

1. Power off any VMs that are running on the host.

2. Place the host into maintenance mode.

3. Find out which bulletins are applicable to the ESXi host.

vihostupdate.pl --server <server> --scan --bundle <local_path>/hp-esxi4.1uX-bundle-1.0a.zip

4. (Optional) List all the bulletins that are available in the bundle.

vihostupdate.pl --server <server> --list --bundle <local_path>/hp-esxi4.1uX-bundle-1.0a.zip

5. Install bulletins from the bundle on the ESXi host.

vihostupdate.pl --server <server> --install --bundle <local_path>/hp-esxi4.1uX-bundle-1.0a.zip --bulletin bulletin1,bulletin2

if you omit the --bulletin argument, this command installs all the bulletins in the bundle.

6. Verify that the bulletins are installed on your ESXi host.

vihostupdate.pl --server <server> --query
