I've recently been messing around with ESXi 5 (the free version) and kickstart installs, however I've got a few questions relating to keyboard layouts and installing vmware patches.
Keyboard layouts: Is there any way to set the UK keyboard layout? I've tried both keyboard uk and keyboard UK (without any success). Will I have to keep manually changing it after installation?
Patches: Is there any way of installing patches using kickstart?
I've tried using the following in the kickstart (under %firstboot), but it's been unsuccessful:
andCode:cd /tmp/ wget http://x.x.x.x/ESXi500-201112001.zip esxcli software vib install -d /tmp/ESXi500-201112001.zip #esxcli software vib update --depot="/tmp/ESXi500-201112001.zip" vim-cmd hostsvc/maintenance_mode_exit reboot
Is there any way of doing the above things or am I trying to do something that isn't possible?Code:wget /tmp/ http://x.x.x.x/ESXi500-201112001.zip esxcli software vib update --maintenance-mode --depot /tmp/ESXi500-201112001.zip reboot
I ended up performing the installation manually as it turned out to be quicker than messing around with unattended installs, so this thread can be deleted/marked solved if needed.
