  2. Double-click ISO_mount_directory/autorun.exe

vCenter Server Java Components Update wizard opens.   

  1. Click Patch All.

When you double-click the Patch All button, patches are applied to the existing products by launching the corresponding Windows installer packages. Autorun displays the patch results at the end.


  • 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.
