2 months ago, I upgraded our ESX 3.5 to Vsphere 4. I am quite familiar with the update manager using virtual center 2.5 however now with vcenter 4 update manager, there are significant changes to the update manager.

I currently have 2 dynamic baselines for Host and Client. How do go about applying these updates? Is it as easy as doing a scan, choosing remediate, choose the baseline and presto your done? Would the process be the same for vmware tools update as well since it is on a separate baseline?

Thanks in advance.
