Upgrade info needed

Hi all,

I have a host running ESX 3.5 U5. I need to patch the host and currently do not have the option to go to 4.x.

I checked that after ESX 3.5U5 there were 8 patches released. snapshot attached.

How should I go about patching these updates?

Thanks

Vaibhav

If you don't use the Update Manager you can install the updates via command line as well.

http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2012/02/quickest-way-to-patch-an-esxesxi-using-the-command-line.html

gives you an overview how to do it with vCLI or direct shell access

if you have esx and not esxi installed you can follow this explanations here:
