VMU importance in VMWare.
Posted on 2013-01-02
I am starting off with VMWare now , so far its fun learning ESXi , vCenter configuration. Now I have few questions on installating VMU for vCenter.
Below are my question
1. Is it mandatory to install VMU if we have vCenter ? If no , then do we have any other alternative to patch/upgrade the Esxi or VM's?
2.what are the best practice to install VMU in VMWare enviornment . Right now I have only 1 ESxi , 1 vCenter server . So , Shall I use my vCenter server to install VMU in it ? If yes about the database configuration for VMU?i.e I need to install 2 separate instanaces , 1 for vCenter and 1 for VMU?
Please help me in understanding this
