https://kb.vmware.com/kb/2008939 This video demonstrates how to update patches on an ESXi 5.x/6.x host using “esxcli software vib” commands. Patches can either be “Installed” or “Updated” on an ESXi host using the “esxcli software vib” commands Caution: The install method has the possibility of overwriting existing drivers. If you are using third-party ESXi images, VMware recommends using the update method to prevent an unbootable state. Patches for VMware products can be downloaded from the following location http://www.vmware.com/patchmgr/download.portal For additional information, see VMware Knowledge Base article 2008939 at the following URL https://kb.vmware.com/kb/2008939
