Correlating vCenter Server and ESXi/ESX host build numbers to update levels

Purpose

This article provides information on determining which build number represents which Update level.

This table provides a list of all VMware Infrastructure 3 and vSphere build numbers and release dates:

Note: The build numbers are based on full installations. Patching ESXi/ESX hosts increments the build number that shows in vCenter Server.
