Finding the vSphere 6.5 U1 ZIP Administration Guide bundle

This week I had a need to download the official PDF guides to vSphere 6.5 U1. I like having the guides offline because Apple’s Spotlight can index them and make them available for search queries – but also if you in a place where internet access is restricted you can use the offline docs to lookup stuff.

The official landing page for documentation around vSphere is located here:

https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/index.html

The documentation is in a html and pdf.

Recently VMware has moved all its ‘administration guides” online in a HTML format called “VMware Docs Home” – https://docs.vmware.com/. It is still possible to download an “offline” PDF copy as single .ZIP file. But they have rather “tucked” it away where its tricky to find.  If you need it – it can be found under a node called “Archive Packages”. These links down a single .ZIP file containing all the PDFS

You can download a zip file of all vSphere documentation as a zip file using this link which is current as of today, 14th Feb, 2018….
