VMware ESXi Image Profiles

This page provides an overview of all available ESXi Image Profiles. An Image Profile defines the set of VIBs that an ESXi installation or update process uses. Each patch contains two or four Image Profiles. When a patch is published, there is always a separate Image Profile that contains security patches only and all patches are available with or without the VMware Tools VIB (tools-light). Patches with security updates only do not have a separate "security only" Image Profile. The extra Image Profile without VMware Tools is useful because the tools-light VIB is about 50% of the total ESXi Image size.

Example - ESXi 5.5 Patch 2 contains 4 Image Profiles:

  1. ESXi-5.5.0-20140704001-standard - Contains all patches
  2. ESXi-5.5.0-20140704001-no-tools - Contains all patches but no VMware Tools
  3. ESXi-5.5.0-20140701001s-standard - Contains security patches only
  4. ESXi-5.5.0-20140701001s-no-tools - Contains security patches only and no VMware Tools
