- How to easily update your VMware Hypervisor to ESXi 6.0 Update 2
Mar 16 2016
You'll have plenty of time to read the release notes, once you kick off those downloads! Yes, VSAN 6.2 has arrived, read more at VMware Virtual SAN 6.2 Features Deduplication, Compression, and RAID5 or RAID6 over 10GbE.
I noticed the Download Manager isn't needed anymore, just use the Download Now buttons. You'll get up to about 20Mbps per download, and they come right from an Akamai CDN. Kick off two concurrent downloads, and you may get 40Mbps, if your ISP provides you with that kind of bandwidth.
1a) Registered commercial license key users can download the 6.0 Update 2 ISO
If you do want:
- the ESXi 6.0 Update 2 ISO
- the full vSphere 6.0 Update 2 with vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA) for the FUN and useful stuff like vMotion
and you have:
- you have a commercial license of vSphere
then here's the link for all that good stuff, or go right to the specific links:
ESXi ISO image (Includes VMware Tools 10.0.0) download
Release Date: 2016-03-15
Build Number: 3620759
VMware vCenter Server 6.0 Update 2 Appliance download
Release Date: 2016-03-15

1b) Download ESXi 6.0 Update 2 - non-commercial license holder
EVALExperience/trial/free hypervisor owners doing a new install
What is you don't have a commercial license of vSphere?
Read all about EVAL Experience here:
- VMTN reincarnated! EVALExperience is to VMware Professionals what MSDN/TechNet is to Microsoft Professionals.
Once you get signed up for your EVALExperience and make payment (it comes free with VMUG Advantage) membership, you'll get license keys and instructions for downloading. You have 60 days to "play" with ALL features working during this trial period. To keep things easy, you should apply the license key before the 60 day trial ends, and it will then restrict you to only EVAL Experience features. Note, there is no VMware support included with EVAL Experience, and you may not be able to download the latest hypervisor and vCSA, I'm still looking into this.
