From the Patch Repository, you can include available as well as recently downloaded patches and extensions in a baseline of your choice.


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 icon.


  1. Click the Patch Repository tab to view all the available patches and extensions.
  2. Click the Add to baseline link in the Baselines column for a selected patch.
  3. In the Edit containing baselines window, select the baselines in which you want to include this patch or extension and click OK.
    If your vCenter Server system is connected to other vCenter Server systems by a common Single Sign-On domain, you can add or exclude the patches from baselines specific to the selected Update Manager instance.
