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.

Hello Tillu,

You may want to use the command line for automation purpose. Please follow the below link.

If you wish to do it from vim-cmd  for  creation , revert and delete follow below.
