This is not intended for VMware ESXi 4.1.x.

Prerequisites
Before you can update or patch an vSphere 6.0 host from the command line, you must have access to a machine on which you can run the VMware vSphere Command-Line Interface 6.0 (vSphere CLI). You can install the vSphere CLI on your Microsoft Windows or Linux system. For information about importing or installing the
vSphere CLI 6.0, see the VMware vSphere Command-Line Interface Installation and Reference Guide.

Procedure

  1. Power off any virtual machines that are running on the host and place the host into maintenance mode.
  2. Transfer the offline bundle onto the ESXi host local path, or extract it onto an online depot.
  3. Install the bundle on the ESXi host.
    • Install remotely from client, with offline bundle contents on a online depot:
         esxcli -s <server> -u root -p mypassword software vib install -d <depotURL/bundle-index.xml>
    • Install remotely from client, with offline bundle on ESXi host:
         esxcli -s <server> -u root -p mypassword software vib install -d <ESXi local path><bundle.zip>
    • Install from ESXi host, with offline bundle on ESXi host:
         esxcli software vib install -d <ESXi local path><bundle.zip>
  4. After the bundle is installed, reboot the ESXi host for the updates to take effect.
  5. (Optional) Verify that the vibs on the bundle are installed on your ESXi host.
       esxcli -s <server> -u root -p mypassword software vib list
  6. (Optional) Remove individual vibs. <vib name> can be identified by listing the vibs as shown in #5.
       esxcli -s <server> -u root -p mypassword software vib remove -n <vib name>

    • HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2P 533FLR-T Adptr
  • HPE Insight Management WBEM Providers report incorrect number of Ethernet Ports - When FCoE Adapter “HPE FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 536FLB” is installed, server is configured as a combination of Ethernet ports (FCoE)) and FC ports (Storage). When the FC port connections are taken from FC switch, HPE Insight Management WBEM Providers report all the ports including the FC ports as Ethernet port.
  • HPE Insight Management WBEM Providers is not reporting the actual OperationalStatus of FC port and accordingly WBEM indications are also not getting generated - When FC Adapter “HPE FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 536FLB” is installed on a server and if the FC cable is connected or disconnected from ports, HPE Insight Management WBEM Providersreports wrong value for the OperationalStatus property in FC Provider classes. Also the WBEM indications does not get generated. OperationalStatus reflects with changed status only after WBEM Provider restarts.

When the FC port connections are taken from FC switch, HPE Insight Management WBEM Providers report all the ports including the FC ports as Ethernet port.
  • HPE Insight Management WBEM Providers is not reporting the actual OperationalStatus of FC port and accordingly WBEM indications are also not getting generated - When FC Adapter “HPE FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 536FLB” is installed on a server and if the FC cable is connected or disconnected from ports, HPE Insight Management WBEM Providersreports wrong value for the OperationalStatus property in FC Provider classes. Also the WBEM indications does not get generated. OperationalStatus reflects with changed status only after WBEM Provider restarts.
