Is there an issue with the site
The contents.xml file does not appear to match up with the actual patches - I suspect it has not been updated from the January patches -
When I try to use the ftp depot I have created it finds no appropriate bundles. This is a problem as I cannot use Update manager as I am running on a site without Virtual Centre.
I tried again (cleared IE cache etc) but was still getting the same duff file, but had a thought that there might be a Proxy server caching it here. Got onto an ADSL line and got the updated one, ESX now updating fine.
VMware must have fixed it recently!
Interesting why you aren't getting the correct file. I downloaded the new ESX-3.5.0-contents file earlier today and it matches what EnsignA has which looks to be correct.
Yes it is. I just verified by manually deleting the cached file. And I still do not get the new file. I wonder how many servers are in use?
I just had the same problem for April patches.. Followed the link above, everything worked fine.. clicking the link in the download page gave me last months contents.xml file.
