HPE Custom Image for ESXi 7.0 U2a

I realize HPE doesn't normally release patched images of ESXi, only those for main update releases (U1, U2, etc), but given the unique circumstances of ESXi 7.0U2 (download links being taken down by VMware), is HPE planning on releasing an updated custom image (and corresponding addon) for the newly re-released 7.0U2a?

https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads/details?downloadGroup=ESXI70U2A&productId=974&rPId=65022#custom_iso

Or, should customers build their own image starting with the HPE 7.0 U2 base then merging the updated VIBs provided by VMware from this new U2a release?

Thanks!

No, I have not seen that.  Thanks for the heads-up though! As a customer, that was not made available to the public until today (05/04). I've been watching vibsdepot closely waiting for updated info.

Unfortunately, the VUP you reference is for updating firmware only. My question was in regards to the image that is used for the ESXi operating system itself. It looks like the mapping documents have just been updated today as well, and they do call out updated images in the revision history:

http://vibsdepot.hpe.com/mapping/SPP-HPE_Custom-Image-vibsdepot-mapping-Gen9-later.pdf
"Added May 2021 6.5 U3, 6.7 U3, 7.0 U1 and 7.0 U2 HPE Custom Images"

Those images do not appear to be available from VMware yet though. The HPE OEM images on VMware's site are still the ones from 03/09, for ProLiant anyway.

Hi,

 

Thank you for the Post.

 

Images available on the link : https://www.hpe.com/in/en/servers/hpe-esxi.html are the only available Files as of now.

 

There may be a future release (but not sure at the moment) and may be updated on the link.

 

Thank you
