New Download Plug-in for Patches for ESX Site

Starting in August of 2013, VMWare has started using dynamically generated URLs for their ESX patch downloads. This change in how VMWare generates download links for their patches resulted in the development of a download plug-in for deploying ESX patches through IEM. The ESX download plug-in can be registered to IEM Servers and Relays using the "Manage Download Plug-ins" dashboard provided by the "Patching Support" site. The download plug-in is only required for Patches released during August, 2013 or later. All previous patches can be downloaded and deployed without the download plug-in.
