Updating esx 3i
At least some of the modules derive from modules used in the Linux kernel.
To access these modules, an additional module called In ESX (and not ESXi), the Service Console is a vestigial general purpose operating system most significantly used as bootstrap for the VMware kernel, vmkernel, and secondarily used as a management interface.
In this post I will introduce a new VMware tool called VMware v Sphere Host Update tool.
With this tool you’re able to update an ESX host without VUM, just like the VMware Infrastructure Update utility. An other interesting feature of the v Sphere Host Update tool is the option to upgrade an existing ESX(i) Host to v Sphere.
The vmkernel handles CPU and memory directly, using scan-before-execution (SBE) to handle special or privileged CPU instructions Access to other hardware (such as network or storage devices) takes place using modules.Both of these Console Operating System functions are being deprecated from version 5.0, as VMware migrates exclusively to the ESXi model, current version being ESXi.The Service Console, for all intents and purposes, is the operating system used to interact with VMware ESX and the virtual machines that run on the server.Live migration (v Motion) in ESX allows a virtual machine to move between two different hosts.Live storage migration (Storage v Motion) enables live migration of virtual disks on the fly.
