Updated ESXi-Customizer-PS script allows to create ESXi 5.1 Offline bundle

Following the availability of the ESXi 5.1 packages in the VMware Online depot I have updated my ESXi-Customizer-PS script and made two minor, but important changes:

  1. I added a new switch -ozip which allows to export an ImageProfile into an Offline Bundle (instead of an installation ISO). This is important for anyone who wants to use such an Offline bundle to update an existing ESXi 5.x installation like I described in my post about how to update ESXi 5.0 to 5.1. It looks like many people have difficulties downloading the ESXi 5.1 Offline bundle, so this is an easy way to create it yourself (I will update the original post to include instructions).
  2. To reflect this change I also renamed the -isoDir switch to -outDir.
  3. I added another new switch -v50 that will ignore the new ESXi 5.1 ImageProfiles and only use the available ESXi 5.0 ImageProfiles. This is for all the people who don't want to upgrade to ESXi 5.1 now, but stay on the latest patch level of ESXi 5.0.
Please download the new version (1.4) from my Google Code page!
