    ESXi v6 Patch Update showing prior build number

    Phil_LeMaster Novice

      On ESXi v6.0 I downloaded Build 9919195 and installed that update but when I look at the server it's showing build 9313334.

       

      The prior build was 9239799 before I updated to 9919195.

       

      Has anyone ran into this before and is it really 9919195?

          Maybe someone can answer better than me, but the build numbers shown on the "Product Patches" page has never matched the build of ESXi that shows after installation.  I always just assumed that was the build of the installer or something?

           

          To get what your build numbers will show after installation, you're better off just checking against the Build Number KB Article that VMware publishes:

           

          Build numbers and versions of VMware ESXi/ESX (2143832) VMware Knowledge Base

           

          Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it's been updated with the latest OS build numbers for 6.0 right now...

            I have always verified that the Build Number matches the ESXi server and it's always the same. This is the first time it's showing the build number for update ESXi600-201808001 and I ran Update ESXi600-201809001 which should be build number 9919195 according to the my vmware download site.

             

            Unless VMware put the wrong build number on the web site.

              Hi,

              Yes it should be 9919195 build version for ESXi600-201809001.zip. Please run the below command and check what version it is running???

               

              esxcli software vib list | grep "sata-ahci\|misc-drivers"

               

              If it is 9919195, it should it there as

               

              misc-drivers 6.0.0-3.104.9919195 VMware VMwareCertified 2018-09-10

              sata-ahci 3.0-27vmw.600.3.104.9919195 VMware VMwareCertified 2018-09-10
