Continuing my series of quick fire reminders for when (a) I *think* I've seen that issue before and (b) I dont remember what the fix is / was.

Previous post here and possibly here

Simple Manual ESX or ESXi Patching / Driver updates:

  1. Put host into Maintenance Mode
  2. Install vSphere CLI from here (if not already done)
  3. Open vSphere CLI
  4. vihostupdate.pl --server X.X.X.X --install --bundle update-bundle.zip
  5. Reboot Host (if required)

Tried all sorts to fix, unplug KVM, update BIOS, reset default BIOS settings etc etc etc
