So I need to run this firmware upgrade from HP on our ESX 3.5 host. I figured the easiest way to do this was use infrastructure manager to browse the data store...and use the upload feature to push the file into the vmfs store....and then copy it out and run the patch. But I can't copy it out to another directory. I'll do a sudo cp and put in the root password....and then it just says broken pipe. Says the same thing if I try and execute the binary inside the vmfs. Whats the best way to do this?
If you use su you must root password, if you use sudo you must use YOUR password (from the user that use sudo), and the user MUST be enabled to use the command.
