In this course, you'll learn about the use of baselines to update ESXi hosts through the Lifecycle Manager, as well as how to create and attach custom baselines for an ESXi host in a cluster. You'll also explore the use of images to update ESXi hosts through the Lifecycle Manager and how to import and work with an image for an ESXi host in a cluster. Next, you'll review the capabilities that the VMware Lifecycle Manager offers by examining how upgrading VMware Tools and VM hardware can be managed. Finally, you'll learn how to perform an upgrade on one or multiple VMs for both the VMware Tools and VM hardware. This course is one in a series that helps prepare learners for the VMware Certified Professional - Data Center Virtualization 2021 (VCP-DCV 2021) exam.
