Download and Installation

You can download this patch by navigating to the VMware Patch Download Center and selecting VC from the Search by Product drop-down menu.

VIMPATCH package provides an autorun with Patch All button.

  1. Mount the VMware-VIMPatch-T-6.5.0-5178943.iso to the system where the vCenter Server component is installed.

  2. Double-click ISO_mount_directory/autorun.exe

    vCenter Server Java Components Update wizard opens.

  3. Click Patch All.

    When you double-click the Patch All button, patches are applied to the existing products by launching the corresponding Windows installer packages. Autorun displays the patch results at the end.


  • During the patch process, the Management Software undergoes a downtime as the patch restarts the services.
  • vSphere Update Manager activities like Remediation of Hosts etc., are not supported while patching vSphere Update Manager.
  • Systems where all vCenter Server components exist on a single system (Simple Install system), VIMPATCH can be applied only once to update all components. On a distributed system, you need to patch the components on each system individually.
