ESXi 6.0 Update 2

Are the instructions here suitable for upgrading ESXi 6.0 to update 2 on the Gen8?

 

https://tinkertry.com/easy-upgrade-to-esxi-60u2

 

I'm not sure if I installed a HP specific VMWare or what - was so long ago now!

 


Or should I use this method since I am using a separate Windows machine for gaming etc that I could run it from?

Edit : don't think I can use the last method because it requires Vcenter Server which I think is not available to us freeloaders :-p

And I'll answer my questions again :-)

 

upgrading wouldn't work through the EHC because it doesn't seem to accept a metadata.zip file any more, and expects a VIB.

 

I ended up upgrading from an SSH session.

 

Also, it seems that update 2 is using the same hpvsa driver as the last update (5.5.0-100) so I downgraded to 5.5.0-88

This will update you to 6.0 U2: 

# Cut and paste these commands into an ESXi shell to update your host with this Imageprofile
# See the Help page for more instructions
#
esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient
esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.0.0-20160302001-standard \
-d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml
esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e false -r httpClient
#
# Reboot to complete the upgrade

Don't think that's the HP custom one though if you are installing on a Gen8.

Nothing to do with HP Custom. You update ESXi separately from the HP drivers and utilities.

 

# Update to latest HP tools and drivers
esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient
esxcli software vib update --depot=http://vibsdepot.hp.com/hpq/latest/index.xml --force
esxcli software vib update --depot=http://vibsdepot.hp.com/hpq/latest/index-drv.xml --force
esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e false -r httpClient

# Reboot to complete the upgrade

Don't forget to downgrade the storage controller back to build 88 after doing this.
