Apply ESXi 5.5 Update 2 via cli

With Mike’s excellent post, I was able to update my esxi install from Update 1 to Update 2 via the command line.


esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient
esxcli software profile update -d -p ESXi-5.5.0-20140902001-standard
esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e false -r httpClient

To get the list of updates:

esxcli software sources profile list -d
