    Using Update Manager to patch a single ESX host environment

    slickshoes Enthusiast

       

      So I have a single ESX host that I want to patch using VMware Update Manager.  The problem is, since its a single ESX host I can't vmotion vCenter somewhere else to patch.  The server needs to be in maintenance mode to remediate, but I can't shutdown vCenter because then I don't have Update Manager.. what do I do or what am I doing wrong? I would prefer to not use esxupdate

       

       

      Thanks
