Is there a new Custom ESXI 5.5-U-3b being released by VMware for security vulnerabilties being reported.
Please share us the link or steps for downloading / upgrading to the latest version
Version being looked for downloading is Cisco Custom for the patch below
With Best Regards,
Cisco generally only releases an OEM/customized image per Update release (i.e. GA, U1, U2, U3).
Hello deanesh, I am facing the similar dilemma while planning the patch upgrade of my UCS mini. Can you let me know how you went through with this upgrade planning please.
We have applied the patch provided by VMWare on the existing Custom ESXi 5.5 and the patch got reflected and it is working.
If you want to know more details in depth please contact suparn bector who has applied the patch in our team.
With Best Regards,
So did you need to update the fnic /nic drivers after the patching process ?
and could you please redirect me to suparn bector as i cannot find him .
Apologies for the delayed response.

So are you using the default vmware patches ? as the cisco customised ones gets released only after 1-2 months delay

Would it be ok to take the latest cisco image "Vmware-ESXi-5.5.0-3248547-Custom-Cisco-184.108.40.206-Bundle.zip – Release date 2016-02-05 – Build number 3248547" and only update the esx-base .vib from ESXi 5.5 express patch 10 (ESXi550-201602001.zip)
I am using .pxe boot autodeploy, so I would only update the one (esx-base.vib) in my EsxImageProfile. Then I would have the latest version of 5.5 U3b that is patched along with the cisco drivers from the older bundle release.
Want to make sure this would be a certifiable and supportable "image" I don't know if there is any interoperability testing of .vib's that are released as a "packaged image"
Our host is at 5.5 U3b and I need to put the express patch #10 after a vulnerability scanning. Can I update the host with have to build a custom ISO and do I will still supported by cisco ?
