vSphere Host Update Utility compiles a list of ESX/ESXi hosts that you connect to directly by using the vSphere Client. If the list is not complete, you can add hosts to be managed by vSphere Host Update Utility.

The host must be reachable.

1

Select Start > Programs > VMware > vSphere Host Update Utility 4.0.

2

Select Host > Add Host.

3

Enter the host name or IP address and click Add.

vSphere Host Update Utility verifies that the selected host is reachable and adds the host to the list.

Scan hosts and apply available updates or upgrade a host.
