ESXi Update: Applied wrong software update profile

I wanted to update our ESXi 6.0 (3620759) with the newest updates. I used the VMware ESXi Patch Tracker ( [https://esxi-patches.v-front.de/ESXi-6.0.0.html](https://esxi-patches.v-front.de/ESXi-6.0.0.html) )

I made a mistake and took the latest profile ( **ESXi-6.0.0-20191204001-standard** (Build 15169789)) and now it wants to remove a lot of VIBs from the server.

Is there a way to undo that so I can, take the correct upgrade path?

I did not restart the server, as I am afraid that it won’t start with all these VIBs missing.

Here is the list of what it removed, thanks for some ideas, what to do now:

[root@localhost:~] esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.0.0-20191204001-standard \

> -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml

  1. Everything looks OK to me. 24 VIBs were removed, and for each of those 24 a newer version was installed; that’s how a profile update works normally.

    Were you expecting something different?
