Update ESXi 4 standalone server without vCentre


If like me you have the free Vmware ESXi 4 standalone server you’ve probably found that updating it can be a bit tricky without having vCentre handy or a second server to migrate all  your VMs to.  So here is the process i have just followed to successfully update my 2010 v4.1 server to the latest patch level.

cd /vmfs/volumes
cd your-datastore
esxupdate check --bundle ./filename_of_bundle.zip
esxupdate update --bundle ./filename_of_bundle.zip
