Good day, friends.
I want to update my ESXi to the newest build but I have never done it before.
And I have a question.
On the download page there are ESXi550-201312001 update-from-esxi5.5-5.5_update01 ESXi550-201404020 and ESXi550-201404001
Can I install only the last build ESXi550-201404020 or I need to install them in sequence ? Why there is such a big difference in file size ESXi550-201312001 651mb and ESXi550-201404020 331 mb?
Sorry for my English and Thank you!
Download the latest version of VMware ESXi, the last you better. If the server is IBM, HP or DELL, download the version of esx customized for each manufacturer.
I have HP Proliant DL 380p Gen8 and I have installed HP ESXi build 1623387, but the HEARTBLEED OPENSSL BUG didnt fix in this build.
What I need to do? Can I install NOT hp esxi fix ESXi550-201404020
You are running on 1623387 -- ESXi 5.5 Update 1. You have to install the patch ESXi550-201404001.
ESXi550-201404020 is NOT for ESXI 5.5 Update 1 host. Refer here VMware KB: Resolving OpenSSL Heartbleed for ESXi 5.5 - CVE-2014-0160
As you are updating from 5.1 to 5.5 ...it is better to go for the patch is which will give you all the fixes in 5.5U1 & additional heartbleed fix.
VMware has provided complete ISO as well. It is mean that Patch Release ESXi550-201404001 will have 5.5 + 5.5 U1 + heartbleed fix. Without any confusion plz pick the complete ISO and update from 5.1 to 5.5
You are download and install the last version of esxi vmware,hp or ibm.
