I have plug-ins and updates waiting to be applied on my vmware vcenter. Is it generally safe to just go ahead and apply them..Sorry I have no VM expertise but can generally find my way around the vCenter console.
Thanks

Yes, it is safe, it will not affect running VMs, as vCenter Server is just a management server.

Just make sure you take a backup or CLONE (is better) of vCenter Server as a backup, things can go wrong, and it's easy then to restore.
