Hi!

How much disk space do Update Manager take with patches and stuff?

Got like 6gb free and have not installed Virtual center and update manager jet.... Is this enough?

see update manager admin guide(http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vi3_vum_10_admin_guide.pdf), p13,

"The amount of space required to store the updates on the server on which the Download Service is installed

varies based on the number of different operating systems and applications you will be patching and the

number of years you will be gathering patches on this system. Expect to need 50 gigabytes (GB) for each year

of ESX Server patching and 11GB for each virtual machine operating system and locale combination."
