I just released a new major version of my ESXi-Customizer-PS PowerCLI script that greatly simplifies and automates the process of creating fully patched and customized ESXi 5.x installation ISOs using the ImageBuilder snapin.

What's new:

  • A new operational mode (-update) allows to update a locally existing ESXi Offline bundle with the latest patch level from the VMware Online depot. This way you can easily bring a vendor supplied ESXi installation ISO (like the HP Customized ISO) to the most recent ESXi patch level.
  • Added -v51 switch to limit image profile selection to ESXi 5.1
  • and more ...
