VMware update manager vs Microsoft updates
Posted on 2009-03-31
We have a series of ESX 3.5 VM's that are referenced against a dynamic VMware baseline for updates. The baseline is set to check weekly for Critical updates, another task schedules the VM scan to compare against the baseline.
With VM's remediated against the latest baseline I am seeing a larghe discrepancy between what VMware sees as required critical updates, and what microsoft feels are required critical/hi priority updates.
I understand that the updates come from different sources, but can anyone explain why they might be so vastly different?
