As a follow up to my previous post, supported virtualization environments for SQL Server, here is a great blog post at Techhead on How to Determine the VMWare ESX or ESXi Build Version.  I was looking to find the Update# from the Build#, and Techhead’s handy table provided that:

VMware ESX Update: Build Number:
ESX 3.5.0 Update 1 64607
ESX 3.5.0 Update 2 110268
ESX 3.5.0 Update 3 123630
   
ESX 3i (3.5.0) Update 3 123629

He lists three ways via the VMWare Infrastructure Client to find the version & build, as well how to use the Service Console to find version, build, and updates applied/update level.  He also provides a link to the VMWare kb that covers this.

Nice to find what looks to be a great reference on VMWare technology, in addition to just getting an answer to my build# question.
