Esx 4 1 ntp not updating
VMware’s Update Manager (included with v Center 5 download) has a nice, new feature for help in upgrading your hosts from ESXi 4.1 U1 to ESXi 5.
The feature, Figure 1, is found in the Admin View and is simply called “ESXi Images”.
Figure 6 shows the attachment of the baseline to the desired remediation object (in this instance, I’ve attached it at the datacenter level).
Figure 7 shows the compliance details after scanning both ESXi 4.1 U1 hosts in my datacenter.

Based on how your environment is set up and the type of connectivity you require, the cabling could be much different than what is pictured above.
Time synchronization across a Windows domain is very important.
The main features of this release are: The table below lists minimum recommended versions of VMware software.
