If you have not patched your esx/esxi, do it!

when?

NOW

Patch overview : http://www.vmware.com/security/advisories/VMSA-2011-0007.html

ESX3.5 and  ESX3.03 are safe.

Patch can be obtained here: (ESXi410-201104001 )

http://www.vmware.com/patch/download/

Unzip it and copy  files to your esxi box(you should have embeddedEsx directory after unpacking)

issue command:

esxupdate -m metadata.zip update

Make sure that host is in Maintenance  mode, and machines are powered off, or migrated to other host in cluster  if you have one. After installing all patches reboot your host.

After reboot check if patches were installed by typing:

esxupdate query

http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere4/r41/vsp_41_esxupdate.pdf -> you can read vmware manual regarding updating your host

http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vcli/vcli41/doc/reference/vihostupdate.html -> here is short manual for vihostupdate if you want to upgrade it using rcli like vMA

I was searching google about this, but i have found nothing which helped.

When running the shortcut on windows 7 (32 bit) you get :

C:\>C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -psc "C:\PowerCLI\vim.psc1" -noe -c ". \"C:\PowerCLI\Scripts\Initialize-VIToolkitEnvironment.ps1\""
Internal Windows PowerShell error.  COM initialization failed while reading Windows PowerShell console file with error 80010106.

 

Ok so what i do in order to get it running properly i start manually powershell console and type 2 lines

First start your PS console : START->RUN->cmd and enter " powershell "

after this just type those 2 lines :

add-PSSnapin -name   "Vmware.vimautomation.core"
. C:\PowerCLI\Scripts\Initialize-VIToolkitEnvironment.ps1

You are ready to go, it's all done

I hope that works for you.
