You can configure what type of baseline to include in the recommendation baseline group that vSphere Lifecycle Manager generates for a vSAN cluster.

A recommendation baseline group can contain upgrades or only host patches and updates. By default, vSphere Lifecycle Manager is set to generate recommendation baselines that contain upgrades, not only patches and updates. But you can change the default configuration at any time. For any vSAN cluster that you manage with baselines, you can also configure vSphere Lifecycle Manager to generate no recommendation baseline group at all. In such cases, you can still mannually create baselines and perform host upgrades.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. In the vSphere Client, navigate to a vSAN cluster that you manage with baselines.
  2. On the Updates tab, select Hosts > Cluster Settings.
  3. In the Remediation Settings for this Cluster pane, click the Edit button.
    The Edit Cluster Remediation Settings dialog box appears.
  4. Select what type of baseline to include in the recommendation baseline group that vSphere Lifecycle Manager generates for the selected vSAN cluster.
    • To include upgrade baselines into the recommendation baseline group for that cluster, select the Include upgrades to new ESXi versions radio button.

      The Include upgrades to new ESXi versions options is the default selection for any newly created vSAN cluster.

    • To include only patches and updates in the recommendation baseline group for that cluster, select the Include patches and updates for current ESXi version radio button.
    • To disable the generation of the recommendation baseline group for that cluster, select the No recommendation baseline group.
  5. Click the Done button to save your selection and exit the dialog box.

Results

The option that you select becomes the default configuration for the vSAN cluster.
