1. copy patch to the esx server in a temp directory with for example winscp
2. change the rights for the directory with chmod 777 "directory"
3. pwd to the directory
4. enter the command: esxupdate update (for standard patches). If the patch has a metadata.zip enter the command: esxupdate update -m metadata.zip

You can also use esxupdate --bundle=ESX4.0.0-update01a.zip update if you don't want to unpack the zip file.

For Esxi 5 the syntax is:

esxcli software vib update --depot /vmfs/volumes/<dataStoreName>/<folderName>/zipfile.zip
