You can detach baselines and baseline groups from objects to which the baselines or baseline groups are directly attached. Because vSphere objects can have inherited properties, you might have to select the container object where the baseline or baseline group is attached and then detach it from the container object.

Before you begin

Ensure that you have the Attach Baseline privilege.

Procedure

  1. Use the vSphere Client or the vSphere Web Client to connect to a vCenter Server system with which Update Manager is registered.
  2. Select the type of object in the vSphere Web Client or vSphere Client object navigator.

    For example, Hosts and Clusters or VMs and Templates.

  3. Select the object in the inventory, and select Update Manager.
