Press Release Patch Downloader v6.0

on Thursday, 25 June 2009. Posted in General

The purpose of Patch Downloader is to ease the pain of downloading patches for various ESX versions from the VMware site by automating it. If a user does not want to or cannot use Update Manager they need to download the patches manually from the VMware website through a Java Download manager. It's easy to miss a patch, and painfully slow to find and select the ones you want. These downloaded patches go on an HTTP or FTP repository, or are copied direct to each host over SSH, and the esxupdate utility is used to patch the ESX host.

With Patch Downloader, you just open the app, select the version of ESX from the drop down, and select a file repository (folder, drive map, SMB share, etc) where you want to download the patches. It lists all of the available patches, and information about the patches including severity of the problem it corrects, what the impact on VM/Host uptime is, and a description of the problem fixed in a spreadsheet grid. The patch grid can be sorted by column like a normal spreadsheet using the columns, so it's easy to bring all the CRITICAL ones to the top, for example. When you click download it will download all of the patches you select to the repository, but skip ones that are already there - so it's simple to keep your ESX patch repository up to date.
