With vSphere 7.0 and later, VMware utilizes components for packaging VIBs and bulletins. The ESXi and esx-update bulletins are dependent on each other, so it’s important to always include both in a single ESXi host patch baseline or include the rollup bulletin in the baseline to prevent host patching failure.
When patching ESXi hosts with VMware Update Manager from a version prior to ESXi 7.0 Update 2, it’s highly recommended to use the rollup bulletin in the patch baseline. If that’s not possible, make sure to include all of the following packages in the patching baseline, otherwise, the update operation will fail:
- VMware-vmkusb_0.1-1vmw.701.0.0.16850804 or higher
- VMware-vmkata_0.1-1vmw.701.0.0.16850804 or higher
- VMware-vmkfcoe_188.8.131.52-1vmw.701.0.0.16850804 or higher
- VMware-NVMeoF-RDMA_184.108.40.206-1vmw.701.0.0.16850804 or higher
This rollup bulletin contains the latest VIBs with all the fixes after the initial release of ESXi 7.0.
VMware patch and update releases contain general and critical image profiles. Application of the general release image profile applies to new bug fixes.

With vSphere 7.x, the Update Manager plug-in for administering vSphere Update Manager is replaced by the Lifecycle Manager plug-in. The administrative operations for vSphere Update Manager are still accessible under the Lifecycle Manager plug-in, in addition to new capabilities for vSphere Lifecycle Manager.
The typical way to apply patches to ESXi 7.x hosts is by using the vSphere Lifecycle Manager. For details, see About vSphere Lifecycle Manager and vSphere Lifecycle Manager Baselines and Images.
You can also update ESXi hosts without using the Lifecycle Manager plug-in, and use an image profile instead. To do this, you must manually download the patch offline bundle ZIP file from VMware Customer Connect. From the Select a Product drop-down menu, select ESXi (Embedded and Installable) and from the Select a Version drop-down menu, select 7.0. For more information, see the Upgrading Hosts by Using ESXCLI Commands and the VMware ESXi Upgrade guide.
Here are the steps to update your host with the latest Image Profile:
- Cut and paste the following commands into the ESXi shell:
esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-7.0U3j-21053776-standard \ -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e false -r httpClient
- Reboot the host to complete the upgrade.
