How to verify or confirm installation of a VMware patch

This post was originally published on this site

Hi,

 

We built the VM (ESXi 6.5) server and installed ‘ESXi650-201912002.zip‘ patch by executing “esxcli software vib install -d /path/to/ESXi650-201912002.zip” during installation.

 

Now the how can I verify that the patch has been installed from the console of the built ESXi server? I ran ‘esxcli software vib list’ and didn’t see the name ‘ESXi650-201912002’ from output, there are several entries with version containing ‘6.5.0…’, but how can I know if one of them is the patch, or even if the patch has (or not) been installed during the installation?

 

TIA
