VMware ESX4 Update 01 Removed from Update Manager

If you are looking to update your ESX4 hosts to Update 01, don’t look in Update Manager.  VMware has removed the update because of a bug with the HP Management Agents preventing the update from completely successfully and rendering the host inoperable.

From KB1016070:

Note: If you want to install the update, you must download the update manually. The update is no longer available for automatic download in Update Manager and the vSphere Update Utility. You can find the update on the VMware Downloads site and copy the download to your local depot as needed.”

Note:  ESXi 4 is unaffected by this KB.
