VMware: new patches available for ESX 3.0.1

Some new ESX 3.0.1 patches are available. Update ESX-3199476 adds support for using Microsoft Clustering Server (MSCS) with Windows 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP 1) and R2 Guest Operating Systems.

There are now a total of 20 patches available for download. BTW: High on my ESX agenda is: creating some general (Perl) script and a (virtual) update server for easier maintenance. Why? Because installing 20 updates for every existing/new server introduced in the environment is a pain in the ***. Download them here

Hi Vincent,

A few days ago i made a blogpost about this subject. I created a virtual directory in IIS whitch contains all the patches.

Then i created a simple script which a run on my esx3 servers. See http://ictfreak.wordpress.com/2007/02/22/esxupdate-with-iis-patch-repository/ for mor information.
