      Hi,

       

       

      I'm trying to update one of my ESX 3i Embedded hosts to the same level as the two other hosts I've got.  I'm trying to update from this:

       

       

      VMware ESX Server 3i 3.5.0 build-110271

       

       

      Installed packages:

      viclient        103682

      tools           103909

      firmware    110271

       

       

      to this:

       

       

      VMware ESX Server 3i 3.5.0 build-110271

       

       

      Installed packages:

      viclient        103682

      tools           110271

      firmware    110271

       

       

      As you can see under, the first package (firmware package) was upgraded, but while upgrading the VMware-Tools package, something went wrong.

       

       

      C:\PROGRA1\VMware\VMWARE3\bin> vihostupdate.pl -server 172.27.58.41 -username root -password MyPassWord -i -b "C:\VMWare\ESX-Embedded-Update2\ESXe350-200808201-O-UG.zip"

       

      Not applicable : ESXe350-200808201-I-UG. Skipped.         <<-- this one was successfully updated

      Installing : ESXe350-200808202-T-UG

      Copy to server : VMware-tools.tar.gz ...

      Copy to server : descriptor.xml ...

      Copy to server : install.sh ...

      Copy to server : contents.xml.sig ...

      Copy to server : contents.xml ...

      Can't call method "fault_string" without a package or object reference at C:\PROGRA1\VMware\VMWARE3\bin\vihostupdate.pl line 271.

       

       

      End Disconnect

       

       

      Anyone got any idea what to do here ?
