I am trying to perform UEFI updates on and IBM x3650 M4 server running VMware ESXi 5.0. I only want to apply a newer the UEFI update, as I've already used the BoMC with all other updates and the UpdateXpress pack.
According to the readme I need to perform the following steps prior to updating via IMM.
1. esxcli network firewall set -d true
2. esxcfg-vswitch -l
3. esxcfg-vswitch -L vusb0 vSwitch0
4. ifconfig vswif0 169.254.xxx.xxx netmask 255.255.0.0
5. Then ping 169.254.95.118 to make sure that you can connect
to the IMM2 using the Ethernet over USB interface
When I Putty to the ESXi host it wil not accept the ifconfig command. What's wrong? Is this now only supported using esxcli? What's the equivalent command(s)?
