[Update] ESXi-Customizer Powershell script version 1.1

With the last part of my ImageBuilder Deep Dive series (also don't miss part 1 and 2) I published a Powershell script to build a customized ESXi 5.0 installation ISO, optionally adding the contents of the HP Online VIBs depot.

HP has recently updated the contents of their Online depots adding the latest releases of their bundles (see this post). I tested the first version of my script and found that it would incorrectly add older versions of the HP packages. So, I have fixed it now to add only the newest version of each available package. Other changes:
  • Skip the hp-smx-limited package. It is not included in HP's customized images and conflicts with the full CIM provider package hp-smx-provider. In fact it is only useful for the new ProLiant Gen8 servers if you want to monitor these through the Agentless Management Service (AMS) only.
  • Added a new command line switch -test. It will skip the actual package download and image building - useful for testing the script and seeing what it would add without wasting any download bandwidth.
The new version 1.1 is available for download now.
