I have VMWare ESXi 4.0 U1 (4.0.0 build 208167) installed on a Dell Precision 490.
Anyhow, I ran the vSphere 4.0 Host Update Utility on the host, and it found 5 updates.
I went ahead and installed these, and it's been stuck at 45% for around 30 minutes.
The status box says "Patching", and "45%", then below that:
Start uploading files to host
Metadata and binaries have been successfully uploaded
Scanning the host completed
Start installing patches
Installing patches on 10.180.44.247 : ESXi400-201002402-BG, ESXi400-201003401-BG
I'm not really sure how to proceed - should I just let it sit there? Will bad things happen if I just give up and reboot the box at the local console? (There doesn't seem to be any way to cancel the update from the Host Update Utility).
