Free Patch tool for VMware ESX Servers

With 80+ ESX servers patching them can turn in to a full time job. I ran across this FREE app that helps out a lot and automats most of the job for you. It reads from your virtual control center (VCC) and downloads the patches from vmware.com, then you can select the patches you want to install and the servers that you want done. It puts the server in Maintenance mode and copies the patch then installs it and reboots and takes the servers out of Maintenance mode.

Its called VMTS Patch Manager and you can get it from http://www.vmts.net/VMTSPatchManager.htm

But if you already own Virtual Control Center (VirtualCenter), patching of ESX (hosts) and linux/windows (guests) is builtin to version the latest version 2.5
