Scanning and remediating vSphere objects

Scanning is the process that can be used to evaluate the vSphere hosts, virtual appliances, or virtual machines against the patches, extensions, and upgrades included in the attached baselines and baseline groups. The Update Manager's scan option can be manually initiated or scheduled to generate compliance information. Baselines and baseline groups must be attached to the ESX/ESXi hosts, virtual machine, or virtual appliances to generate compliance information about the ESX host and to view the scan results. You can manually initiate or schedule the remediation of ESX/ESXi hosts, virtual machines, and virtual appliances. Virtual machines and appliances can be remediated together.
