Update Manager uses the default configuration properties unless you have modified them during the installation process. You can modify the settings in both the vSphere Web Client and vSphere Client.
You can configure and modify the Update Manager settings only if you have the privileges to configure the Update Manager settings and service. The permission must be assigned to the vCenter Server system with which Update Manager is registered. For more information about managing users, groups, roles, and permissions, see the vCenter Server and Host Management documentation. For a list of the Update Manager privileges and their descriptions, see Update Manager Privileges.
If your vCenter Server system is connected to other vCenter Server systems by a common vCenter Single Sign-On domain, and multiple vCenter Server instances use Update Manager, you can configure the settings for each Update Manager instance. The configuration properties that you modify are applied only to the Update Manager instance that you specify, and are not propagated to the other instances in the domain.
To change a certain Update Manager setting in the vSphere Web Client, select and from the list of objects, select the name of the vCenter Server system with which the Update Manager server is registered. The Update Manager settings are available on the Manage tab.
To change a certain Update Manager setting in the vSphere Client, select and clck the Settings tab.
