[em]Does anyone know a powercli command that will work to show all installed patches on an ESXi host?[/em] I've read that it can easily be done within RCLI using the esxupdate -query command. However, I work for a government agency where the approval process for new software (RCLI) is measured in eons.



Software/Hardware used:
vsphere 4, ESXI 4.0 build 56872

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

With PowerCLI you should be able to use the following

    tried running the command "Get-VMhostpatch host" but powercli tells me that it is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Are you sure about the syntax?

    My apologies. The syntax is correct. However, an upgrade of the PowerCli program was required from 4.0 Update 1 to version 4.1 Update 1. Thanks for your help.
