What to cleanup after upgrade with Host Update Utility?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I just updated my esx from 3.5 to 4.0 using the Host Update Utility.

I noticed that inside the local datastore, there is now the esx4.0 iso and a esxconsole-* folder.

Are these 2 still required? or is it safe to remove them after the upgrade? They are taking up a consideration amount of space on the local datastore.

Thanks in advance!

The .iso file can be deleted.

But the esxconsole-* folder is the COS folder for COS's vmdk.

So you cannot delete this folder and you cannot delete the related VMFS datastore.
