ESXi 5.1 Update 1 - Attach to Update Manager ?

Jump to solution

Hi all,

We are looking to update our hosts to ESXi 5.1 U1. I've checked the customized image on DELL's website and it states the download is for recovery / re-installation only.

 

Does anyone know if we can attach this to update manager and update the hosts ? This was the method for updating from 5.0 > 5.1 in the past.

 

Thanks in advance 🙂

Lee,

That is correct, they can be used for update as well. The labeling is somewhat misleading.

If you have any issues let me know.

Ooops, I have one more question. In the compatibility section of the update, I could not see the DELL R610 server listed. Does anyone know if the R610 will be ok with this update ?

Thanks!
