ESXi 5.5 Build 1892794 ?

Looking to create a custom ISO build for deployment (also including updated Cisco UCS drivers in the ISO to match UCS compatibility matrix), using PowerCLI.

Looking at ESXi patch portal, there appears to be a patch available, patch ESXi550-201407001 that brings ESXi 5.5 to build 1892794 (VMware KB: VMware ESXi 5.5, Patch Release ESXi550-201407001)

However when looking at VMware KB: Correlating VMware products build numbers to update levels build 1892794 is not listed. What is this patch and should I be using as a basis for my custom media?

Cheers

Looks like the build number table just hasn't been updated to include this patch released on July 1st yet.

This patch is exactly what's described in the patch details articles linked there, e.g. for the core esx-base package:

VMware KB: VMware ESXi 5.5, Patch ESXi550-201407401-BG: Updates esx-base

I see no reason why you shouldn't use this for your image.

OK, I wonder what the 1892794 build is referred to as then?  Would be handy to know for documentation purposes

I don't understand your question. ESXi Build 1892794 is what you get when installing the update VMware KB:     VMware ESXi 5.5, Patch ESXi550-201407401-BG: Updates esx-base (see VIBs Included: VMware:esx-base:5.5.0-1.28.1892794), which is an update released on July 1st with several other patches mentioned in  VMware KB:     VMware ESXi 5.5, Patch Release ESXi550-201407001.

The build number list just hasn't been updated yet.

Yeah, no worries. Was looking for a "friendly" name.  Looking at http://packages.vmware.com/tools/versions it would appear that build 1892794 is referenced as "esx/5.5p02" - ESXi 5.5 Patch 2.

Top banana, that'll do for me.
