Upload and Install ESXi Patch via PowerCLI

This post was originally published on this site

The Script I have created a few weeks ago is a little bit more than a simple Upload and Install ESXi Patch via PowerCLI. The Script uses for the installation of the Patch Bundle the VMware PowerCLI ESXCLI v2 Cmdlet (no SSH Connection for esxcli). This method forces the installation of the VIBs in the Patch Bundle and allows also a downgrade of the Version. The Install-VMHostPatch Cmdlet, which is common for the Patch installation with PowerCLI, only applies version updates and does not force a downgrade of a VIB.
