I had ~30 windows machines which require a certain version of chrome, I just changed the update folder name in google program files folder and it worked well.
After moving these machines to a new ESX, when machines are running, the update folder and scheduled tasks renew and chrome is updated.
the only change was migrating to a new esx.
I suspect there is policy in vsphere that enforces this change but cant seem to find it…
Any help will be appreciated.
