Just posted threads on this.
Disabled iSCSI on both servers I applied it to.
Didn't seem to actually apply to one server. When it was finished, it never requested a reboot. Did one anyway, following this, build number has not updated. Host Updater tells me it's already updated and won't offer any further updates, despite the server reporting an old build number.

I want to update from ESXi 4 to U1. What ZIP do I use? One is said to be used by experts via commandline and is only for 4.0 to U1. The other is said to be used when going from 3.5 to 4U1.
I want to use Update Manager to go from 4.0 to 4.0 U1. Which one to use???
Yes. But still I will be getting questions from customers about why there are two ZIPs and which one to use if you want to insert it manually into a upgrade baseline going from 4.0 to 4.0U1. So.. Which ZIP is to be used when doing this? The explanations on the ZIPs seem to leave out this scenario? Very strange..

All my iSCSI (software initiator) traffic times out so my ESX server is unusable.
I use a WUDSS iSCSI Target which is not on the HCL although WUDSS is used by quite a few HP Storage servers which are on the HCL
I raised an SR and they said that as WUDSS wasn't explicitly on the HCL they couldn't help and that my best bet was to re-install my ESX Server with the pre-update1 version of ESX.Great
