Upgrading to ESXi 5.0 Update 1 using VMware Update Manager

VMwareI’m currently updating a very small 4-host cluster built for a specific application within our datacentre, the hosts are IBM HS22 blades. Since we have the VMware Update Manager infrastructure in place already, I downloaded the IBM ESXi 5.0 Update 2 ISO and imported it into Update Manager, created a baseline and then applied it to the cluster. I scanned the cluster with the baseline and was issued this warning for each host:

HS22 Upgrade Error 1

That’s fine – there is anĀ option to remove those modules when you remediate the host. (more…)
