You can delete baselines that you no longer need from Update Manager. Deleting a baseline detaches it from all the objects to which the baseline is attached.

About this task

You can delete baselines from the Update Manager Client Administration view.


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. In the Baselines pane of the Baselines and Groups tab, select the baselines to remove, and click Delete.
  2. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes.


The baseline is deleted.
