  • If your data center uses an ESXi 6.0 Update 2 deployment or patches based on ESXi 6.0 Update 2 and you do not plan to upgrade to ESXi 6.0 Update 3, see  KB 2149673.
Note: To determine your ESXi deployment type, see KB 2143832.

Patch Download and Installation

The typical way to apply patches to ESXi hosts is through the VMware vSphere Update Manager. For details, see the Installing and Administering VMware vSphere Update Manager.
 
ESXi hosts can be updated by manually downloading the patch ZIP file from the VMware download page and installing the VIB by using the esxcli software vib command. Additionally, the system can be updated using the image profile and the esxcli software profile command. For details, see the vSphere Command-Line Interface Concepts and Examples and the vSphere Upgrade Guide.
