We have VCenter server 6.5 running on a Vsphere6 host along with a few other VM's (We have just moved to VCenter Server and update manager in one) I am trying to do the patches and updates and receiving the error. : "The host "x.x.x.x" has a VM xxx with vmware vcenter server installed. The VM must be moved to another host for the remediation to proceed."
At present we do not have enough resources to move the VM and i think it is a little silly not to be able to carry out the updates easily via vcenter. Any help / feedback would be appreciated.
You ll need to have the VCenter running on a different host, I don't think there is a way around this as when the host restarts to update the VCenter (and other VMs) would normally be moved by DRS.
