I was told, when we first purchased a virtual environment and had our servers moved to virtual using VMware 6.7, that the VMs and HOSTS could be patched/updated without any outages for the users.
From what I am reading, the HOSTS can be patched without any outages if I move all the VMs (while they are running???) on 1 HOST to another. Then I can patch the HOST that does not have any VMs attached???
Also, the 'patching/updating' the VM is actually the VMware Client Tools that can be updated while the VM is functioning???
Is this correct?
Is there any way that I can patch ...say.... a Windows 2016 virtual Operating System without any outage if the Microsoft OS patch requires a reboot?
