As a vSphere administrator, you can enable Kubernetes workloads on vSphere clusters that are managed by VMware vSphere Lifecycle Manager. You can then use the Supervisor Cluster while it is managed by vSphere Lifecycle Manager.

vSphere Lifecycle Manager allows you to manage the ESXi hosts and clusters in your environment. You can use images to install, update, or upgrade the software and firmware running on the ESXi hosts.

vSphere Lifecycle Manager is a service that runs in vCenter Server. When you deploy vCenter Server, the vSphere Lifecycle Manager user interface is enabled in the HML5-based vSphere Client.

For more information about the vSphere Lifecycle Manager, see the Managing Host and Cluster Lifecycle documentation.
