Update Manager scans vSphere objects to determine how they comply with baselines and baseline groups that you attach. You can filter scan results by text search, group selection, baseline selection, and compliance status selection.
When you select a container object, you view the overall compliance status of the container against the attached baselines as a group. You also see the individual compliance statuses of the objects in the selected container against all baselines. If you select an individual baseline attached to the container object, you see the compliance status of the container against the selected baseline.
If you select an individual virtual machine, appliance, or host, you see the overall compliance status of the selected object against all attached baselines and the number of updates. If you select an individual baseline attached to this object, you see the number of updates grouped by the compliance status for that baseline.
The compliance information is displayed on the Update Manager tab. For more information about viewing compliance information, see Viewing Scan Results and Compliance States for vSphere Objects.
