I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You do not need to do it from command line. You can connect to ESXi host directly and make snapshot from here.
Another good thing to do before upgrading/patching is to make a good backup of your VM. Also you can make a clone of vCenter server and in case sth goes wrong you simply delete failed vCenter VM and power on your clone.
