In this video, learn how to attach a baseline to a group of ESXi 6.7 hosts. Learn how to scan the hosts, find missing updates, apply the changes through remediation, and reboot and place hosts in maintenance mode as required.
- [Rick] In this video I'll demonstrate … how to use Update Manager to patch a group of ESXi hosts … that are in a cluster. … So, here I am at the home screen of my vSphere client. … I'm just going to click on hosts and clusters … and here's a cluster that I have enabled … fully automated DRS on. … Now, my cluster is configured to automatically … migrate virtual machines around. … So, if Update Manager tries to place one of these hosts … in the maintenance mode, all of the VMS are running on it … will be automatically migrated to a different host. … Now, that being said some of these virtual machines, … if we take a closer look at them … are stored on local data stores. … So, that's a vMotion deal-breaker. … We're not going to be able to migrate … these virtual machines to other hosts … because they're stored on local storage. … So, that's something to just bear in mind here, … DRS can't move virtual machines around … if they're incompatible with vMotion. … They have their disks on local data stores …
