I’ve got a R730 running the base 6.7U1 ISO, with an active VMUG license. I’ve upgraded the VCSA to the latest 05-DEC-2019 patch. I’ve recently consolidated from 2 x R710’s to a single new host.
I’ve gotten instructions on how to update via the CLi on the hypervisor host. My question is, how is the best way to enter my host into maintenance mode. Perform the upgrade and remove it from maintenance and start up all services/VM’s again?
Can I log directly into the ESXi, shutdown all VM’s and enter itself into maintenance? Or need to shut down VM and enter maintenance via CLi on the hypervisor?
