I am managing my ESXi Server from a vSphere Web Client running on a vCenter Server Appliance. I wondered is it safe to use the following command (as suggested by that KB article) if my ESXi Server is managed by VCS?
The reason I asked is that I have already encountered problems when I have made changes through the vSphere Client (Windows s/w) or directly on the ESXi UI and those have not been reflected in the VCS environment. I have also seen the following message on the ESXi UI: "This host is being managed by vCenter Server. No action should be taken, but be aware that actions may be performed automatically by vCenter Server without your knowledge."
So the question is simple. In my backup scripts which I am creating on a remote Linux box is it safe to include the sync_config command or will that upset the balance of power with vCenter Server?
I'm running ESXi 6.0.0 Update 2 version 600.9.5.0.48
