VMware ESXi with HP Management Agents ISO Download Returns to VMware.com Site

Share Button

After a brief period of absence the version of VMware ESXi 4.0 containing the HP Management Agents (as I reported here) is now available again for download from the VMware.com site here, back along side the Dell and IBM customised ESXi ISO binaries.  So no more having to travel to the HP site for this download.  I’m not sure of the reasons behind the temporary removal from the VMware site in favour of HP’s though in my opinion it does make more sense to have all customised ESXi ISO binaries in one place for download.

  1. Sadly, it only appears on the “Try Vmware” page and not the downloads page for registered users….

    • Thanks for letting us know Dave.

      That doesn’t make much sense to have it in one place and not the other. Hopefully they’re in the throes of updating the registered users download page. :)

      Cheers,

  2. What benefits does this bring over vanilla ESXi?

  3. The Hp (or Dell or IBM) versions of ESXi include the CIM providers that will give more detailed hardware information in the health info as well as the ability to provide this information up to the monitoring software like Systems Insight Manager or Openview.

  4. DOH!! Now I see whats wrong… This is “Version 4 | 164009 – 11/09/09″ not “Version 4.0 Update 1 | 208167 – 11/19/09″

    Check out your screen shot! This is the older version without U1.

    • Good spotting Dave…

      Missed that myself. Just checked again and there is still no U1 update for the DELL, HP and IBM ESXi builds. The HP U1 build is understandable because of the current issues with the HP agents and U1 but I would have thought the others (Dell and IBM) may have been up by now.

      Cheers,

      Simon

  5. Hi Si, just a quick heads-up.. ESXi v4 u1 Customised HP ISO is now available on the download page again
