The command vihostupdate allows you to extract patch files and to install them on your host. Patches can be download from this link - http://www.vmware.com/download/vi/vi3_patches_3i.html.
To extract the contents of patch use this command.
vihostupdate.pl --server <server_name> -b ESXe350-200712401-O-BG.zip
To install the patch run the following command.
vihostupdate.pl --server <server_name> -i -m ESXe350-200712401-O-BG.zip/metadata.xml
To extract and install the patch in one step run the following command.
vihostupdate.pl --server <server_name> -i -b ESXe350-200712401-O-BG.zip
- the command will extract the patch into the current folder from which you run the vihostupdate.pl command
- at this time you must specify the server to connect to even if you are just extracting the patch
