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.
