You can add a patch, extension, or upgrade baseline to an existing baseline group.

About this task

You can add baselines to baseline groups from the Update Manager Client Administration view.


Ensure that you have the Manage Baseline privilege.

Connect the vSphere Client to a vCenter Server system with which Update Manager is registered, and on the Home page, click Update Manager under Solutions and Applications. If your vCenter Server system is part of a connected group in vCenter Linked Mode, you must specify the Update Manager instance to use, by selecting the name of the corresponding vCenter Server system in the navigation bar.


  1. On the Baselines and Groups tab, click Hosts or VMs/VAs, depending on the type of baseline that you want to add.
  2. From the Baseline Groups pane, select a baseline group and expand it to view the included baselines.
  3. Select a baseline from the list in the Baselines pane, and click the right arrow.


The baseline is added to the selected baseline group.
