update manage - is it possible to Scan/Remediate using remote VI client

Jump to solution

I installed VC2.5 and update manager plugin+installation and choose to download only the ESX patches to the local disk on the VC server.

now I would like that the Scan/Remediation will be done using a VI client that installed on the laptop admin.

is that can be done without downloading the patches to the local admin laptop?

I would like to avoid the need to RDP to the VC server every time that the admin needs to remidiate a host

TIA

Provided you have the correct permissions, you can control the remidiation of servers from any workstation, you don't need to be on the VC.

The client you're running on the laptop must have the plugin enabled, but that's it. The download repository will not change.
