Summaries and Symptoms
In the esxupdate utility, the dependency resolution does not match with the bulletin building policy. While installing ESX hosts, you will not see any errors or warning messages. After the installation, users can check the installed VIB information by running the esxupdate --vib-view query command in the service console. The bulletin delivery policy should be used to use the lowest version of VIB needed so that you can control the fixes you install and avoid unknown or unexpected updates to ESX hosts. This patch fixes the issue.
None beyond the required patch bundles and reboot information listed in the table above.
Patch Download and Installation
See the VMware vCenter Update Manager Administration Guide for instructions on using Update Manager to download and install patches to automatically update ESX 4.1 hosts.
To update ESX 4.1 hosts without using Update Manager, download the patch ZIP file from http://support.vmware.com/selfsupport/download/ and install the bulletin by using esxupdate from the command line of the host. For more information, see the ESX 4.1 Patch Management Guide.
