We have ESX 6.5 and have VMs that are using local storage, not vSAN, what's the good and safe way of patching and updating ESX host. Just concern about not being able to migrate VMs storage to another host.
Appreciate any comments or help.

You may still be able to migrate the VMs to another host if there is enough disk space there.
VUM is always the recommended way for patching & upgrading the ESXi hosts. VUM consists of few steps by which we can patch our ESXi hosts smoothly without any hassle & also can avoid the downtime if we have additional resources available in the cluster. In this post we will see on how we can patch the ESXi hosts using vSphere Update Manager.
