Massimiliano Daneri has published antoher free tool on his website called VMTSPatchManager. This tool, as he call it himself, is the Windows Update for ESX Servers. Although it’s a version 1.0 and not an official VMware product it has some pretty interesting features and looks really cool.
Some of the more interesting features of VMTSPatchManager are:
? Automatic Patch downloading from VMware Web site
? Virtual Center Integration
? Support for Background Intelligent Transfer Service (Microsoft BITS)
? Password saved inside the Microsoft Protected Storage
? SSH Connection (with root or other users)
? Multi Thread implementation
Download it for free here. Thanks to virtualization.info for the pointer.
