How to Attach Baseline to the ESXi Host in VMware Update Manager

In the previous post we have learned about what is baseline and how to create baseline. Once you create baseline you must attach the baseline to the host to check it’s compliance status. So in this post we will see on How you can attach baseline to the ESXi Host. You can either attach baseline to the individual ESXi host or whole cluster. So if you attach to whole cluster then you don’t have to manually attach baseline to each ESXi hosts.

In Paragraph AD

By Attaching Baselines to the host you can check the Compliance of the ESXi hosts against the associated baseline configuration. Here we will be attaching baseline to the Cluster so we don’t need to manually attach baseline for each host.

Attaching baseline for cluster and ESXi hosts are same method. So let’s see How to Attach Baseline to the ESXi Hosts:

Step 1:
Select the Cluster or ESXi host on which you want to Attach Baseline.
Go to Updates Tab.
Select Host Updates.
Here you will see Attached Baselines.
Click on Attach to Attach Baseline to the cluster.
