Updating my ESXi (free) host to 6.7 update 2 to update 3?


I’ve installed ESXi (free) on my NUC home host and it’s on 6.7 update 2, I see version 3 is out, but I don’t see it on my download page. Do the guys who may for Vmug and for the Enterprise license keys get this?

Once it’s available what is the easiest way to update my host?

I think I can do an offline update by doing something like:

`esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.7.0-20190802001-standard -d /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/Updates/<folder>/` and it will look for the index.html

Or stream it down and live install?

  1. All I do to update is type

    >esxcli software vib update -d /vmfs/volumes/DATASTORE/vmwareupdatefilenamehere.zip

    You need to log into the vmware website to get the patches, and you dont need the paid access to get the updates for the free esxi verison
