  • During the patch process, the Management Software undergoes a downtime as the patch restarts the services. 
  • vSphere Update Manager activities like Remediation of Hosts etc., are not supported while patching vSphere Update Manager. 
  • Systems where all vCenter Server components exist on a single system (Simple Install system), VIMPATCH can be applied only once to update all components. On a distributed system, you need to patch the components on each system individually.
