Vmware update manager installation process and prerequisites

What is the process of installing VMware update 6.1 manager on an environment with 3 hosts and VCSA virtual appliance instead of Windows version of vcenter.

I am planning to install it on Windows 2008 r2 server which works as witness server for my Exchange DAG and does  not have any other function except witness and file backup. I presume it would work with SQL express and it comes with VUM installation.

Most of instruction I see is about installing in an enviromnent with vcenter for windows version and rebooting v center during the installation process, however, I don't see any information about VCSA. Does it need to be rebooted after or during VUM installation. Is it better to do in after hours?

Just install VUM on a Windows Server, and link it, during the installation to your vCenter Server (VCSA).

Does not require a reboot, but any change to production environment, is best conducted out of hours.

Personally I would not install it on an Exchange Server.
