VMware Update manager 6.5 and vCenter Server Appliance aka VCSA

As most of us know VMware update manager is one of the most preferred way to patch/upgrade the VMware infrastructure however if someone using a VCSA then until now they have to install vUM on a separate Windows server to make use of it but not anymore.

In vSpgere 6.5 VMware Update Manager is fully integrated with vCenter Server appliance or VCSA, by default the service is set to start automatically so its ready for use right away…

The embedded Update Manager leverages the vPostgres database that is part of the VCSA deployment, so there’s nothing extra to install, configure, or tune.  And because embedded Update Manager does not require a separate VM with its own general purpose operating system, that’s one less element in your datacenter to patch and license!
