This patch resolves the symptoms discussed above and improves patch management activities on all ESX Server hosts. Command line usage of the tool has not changed, but custom scripts and third-party utilities might be affected by these changes.
Download and verify the patch bundle as follows:
Create a local depot directory.
# mkdir -p /var/updates
Note: VMware recommends that you use the updates directory.
Change your working directory to /var/updates.
# cd /var/updates
Verify the integrity of the downloaded tar file:
# md5sum ESX-1000077.tgz
The md5 checksum output should match the following:
Extract the compressed tar archive:
# tar -xvzf ESX-1000077.tgz
Change to the newly created directory, /var/updates/ESX-1000077:
# cd ESX-1000077
After you have downloaded and extracted the archive, and if you are in the directory you created above, install the update using the following command:
# esxupdate update
To run esxupdate from a different directory, you must specify the bundle path in the command:
# esxupdate -r file://<directory>/ESX-1000077 update
For example, if the host is called depot:
# esxupdate -r file:///depot/var/updates/ESX-1000077 update
During the update process, logs appear on the terminal. You can specify the verbosity of esxupdate logs by using the -v option as shown below.
# esxupdate -v 10 file://<directory>/ESX-1000077 update
