Components

Component Bulletin Category Severity
ESXi Component - core ESXi VIBs ESXi_7.0.3-0.40.19898904 Security Critical
ESXi Install/Upgrade Component esx-update_7.0.3-0.40.19898904 Security Critical
 

IMPORTANT:

  • Starting with vSphere 7.0, VMware uses components for packaging VIBs along with bulletins. The ESXi and esx-update bulletins are dependent on each other. Always include both in a single ESXi host patch baseline or include the rollup bulletin in the baseline to avoid failure during host patching. 
  • When patching ESXi hosts by using VMware Update Manager from a version prior to ESXi 7.0 Update 2, it is strongly recommended to use the rollup bulletin in the patch baseline. If you cannot use the rollup bulletin, be sure to include all of the following packages in the patching baseline. If the following packages are not included in the baseline, the update operation fails:
    • VMware-vmkusb_0.1-1vmw.701.0.0.16850804 or higher
    • VMware-vmkata_0.1-1vmw.701.0.0.16850804 or higher
    • VMware-vmkfcoe_1.0.0.2-1vmw.701.0.0.16850804 or higher
    • VMware-NVMeoF-RDMA_1.0.1.2-1vmw.701.0.0.16850804 or higher

Rollup Bulletin

This rollup bulletin contains the latest VIBs with all the fixes after the initial release of ESXi 7.0.

Bulletin ID Category Severity
ESXi70U3e-19898904 Security Critical

VMware patch and update releases contain general and critical image profiles. Application of the general release image profile applies to new bug fixes.

For information about the individual components and bulletins, see the Product Patches page and the Resolved Issues section.

Patch Download and Installation

In vSphere 7.x, the Update Manager plug-in, used for administering vSphere Update Manager, is replaced with the Lifecycle Manager plug-in. Administrative operations for vSphere Update Manager are still available under the Lifecycle Manager plug-in, along with 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.
