i am willing to upgrade my ESXi hosts with the newest security patches available (Version 6.0 Builds 5251623 and 6856897).
i have a direct internet connection and i am trying to install the patches using the default internet repositories.
after successfully downloading the patches i see security patches available only for embedded ESXi's, while the ESXis installed in my environment are only installable (i also validated it with KB 2014558).
When i try to create a new baseline / edit an existing one and set it to dynamic or fixed i see zero patches available for esx 6.0.0.
What are the possible reasons?
i would be happy to get some assistance for solving this issue ASAP! Thanks!
There's no difference in the binaries, but only in the way/target of the installation (see e.g. https://www.v-front.de/2013/03/esxi-embedded-vs-esxi-installable-faq.html )
Simply filter the patches for the baseline by version number "6.0.0" in VUM.
