Upgrade ESXI 4.0 update 2 to ESXi 4.1

Use the VMware host update utility to upgrade the host failed. From instructions from internet, try to upload the unpacked upgrade.zip to the local datastore of the server and run : esxupdate update -m metadata.zip. The upgrade completed without problem on my two ESXI 4 server (One is Dell PE T610, the other is a DIY Core i7 920 with ASUS P6T MB)
