      Hi all,

       

      I published a new and improved version of my ESXi-Customizer-PS script. This PowerCLI script greatly simplifies and automates the process of creating fully patched and customized ESXi 5.x installation ISOs using the VMware PowerCLI ImageBuilder snapin.

       

      Use cases:

      • Build fully patched installation ISOs from the VMware Online depot
      • Create customized installation ISOs with 3rd-party Offline bundles added
      • For HP hardware owners: Automatically add bundles from the HP Online depot
      • ...

       

      Please refer to my blog post for a detailed tutorial and a download link! The -help screen of the script looks like this:
