I have a strange esxupdate problem:
I have downloaded all available patches including contents.zip from esx patch site.
I extracted all updates and contents.zip and copied all stuff to \esxup\update on my esx 3.5
As i tried to scan applicable bundels with the command:
esxupdate -d \esxup\update scan
following error come up: "unrecognized url protocol in \esxup\update\contents.xml.sig
In the past i update esx without any problem and this error i have never seen and there is nothing to this in forums.
Thanks for every help!
Ahhhhh!!!! Are you running Virtual Center? If you are, setup the Update manager feature. It's great. Sorry this doesn't actually fix your problem though.
you have to use forward slashes!
esxupdate -d /var/updates/ -n update
I had the same problem. To resolve this I used the full path including the last "slash". This resolved my issue.
