Get-VMHostPatch can't work in ESXi 5.0

In ESXi 5.0 , "esxupdate" command changed to "esxcli software vib list" .

In PowerCLI, invoke Get-VMHostPath, command successfully , but result is empty.

anyone worked?

I resolved this problem. I used Get-EsxCli CommandLet. (Get-EsxCli).software.vib.list() works!

Get-ESXCli doesn't work quite like get-vmhostpatch.

A dirty way to get this accomplished is to ue the update manager cmdlet get-compliance , after installing UM PowerCLI and creating/attaching/scanning/remediating a baseline.
