VMware ESXi Build Numbers

VMware ESXi Build Numbers

Recently i had to work on multiple VMware ESXi Versions. The fastest way to get the VMware ESXi build numbers is through VCenter. Use the VMware VSphere client to connect to the VCenter Server and select the Host Server to check the build number as shown in the following screenshot:

VMware ESXI build Numbers

I thought it would be helpful to consolidate a list of all VMware ESXi Build numbers at one location. So I have compiled a list of all versions from ESXi 3.5 up to the latest version ESXi 6.5. That will help you identify your current version, build number and patch level.
