Cisco Customized ESXi 5.5 Update 2 Image

When can we expect to see the new ESXi 5.5 Update 2 custom image? I just checked VMWare's site and I see Update 1 but not Update 2.  Is there a supported/recommended method for updating UCS servers to ESXi 5.5 Update 2 in the mean time?

 

Thanks

1) use this utility to figure

1) use this utility to figure out which enic / fnic is required. eg.for ESXi 5.5 U2

Adapter Driver   = 1.6.0.12 (FNIC) / 2.1.2.59 (ENIC)
Adapter Firmware = 2.2(3)

http://www.cisco.com/web/techdoc/ucs/interoperability/matrix/matrix.html

2) Install ESXi 5.5 U2, regular iso (Non OEM version) from VMware website

3) get the above fnic / enic driver from ISO image of UCS-related drivers 
ucs-bxxx-drivers.2.1.3d.iso

4) update the fnic/enic driver either manually with CLI or VUM.

Thanks wdey - do you know

Thanks wdey - do you know when we'll see a Cisco custom ESXi 5.5 U2 ISO? Seems odd that they haven't released one yet - HP, Dell & others have already released theirs.  Hopefully they're not dragging their feet out of spite because of this feud and hurting their customers in the process.
