Applying critical host updates/patches in a View environment

This post was originally published on this site

Hi all,


Here’s the current setup:


View 7.11.0 15231595

vCenter 6.7.0 u3f 15976721

ESXi 6.7.0 P01 15160138


It seems that if I apply critical updates via update manager, the hosts will end up at 6.7.0 EP16, build 16773714   which as far as I can tell takes us beyond the supported host level for view 7.11, which is esxi 6.7.0 U3


How do paople manage this? Surely we’re not expected to upgrade the whole View environment every time there’s a critical host patch that takes us beyond the suported level of View? 


Your thoughts and suggestions are appreciated.
