Its a very quick process to update ESXi version to the latest. This procedure is completed via esxcli going through a SSH session to the Server. The update takes around 5-10mins depending on the hardware resources of the server and the failure is minimal. But not to say that the things wont go wrong so please make a BACKUP before you proceed.

It's possible to get a list of users of active users in IDM/IPA with formatted date and time by running this one liner command. It gets you the list of users with last successsful authentications to IDM/IPA server. Very handy command when it's required for Audit purposes. It will also give you the list of users who last changed password and you can modify it according to your requirements.
