Hi all, I have a quick questions all. When you download the patches with UMDS and then import them into the Update Manager server, where does it store the actual patches? I'm in an environment where the database is stored in a location, and the Update Manager install is in another location, and we have to track not only the current size of the datastores, but we also need to estimate growth of all datastores when we do patching. Does it store them in the same place it would if Update Manager was doing the downloads directly?
My other question is, when I import the patches into Update Manager, it only imports the patches it currently doesn't have correct?
Also, we are using vCenter 2.5 with ESX 3.5, in case that's important.
Thanks in advance for the help.
