#vSphereAMA - Remove VMware tools ESXi patch from vum

    #vSphereAMA

    I have migrated our VMware Tools upgrade to a 3-party deployment application.   VMware Tools are now scheduled by my Applications team.

    I would like to remove the ESXi  patch from VUM patch list to stop the message that tools are out of date.
    Is there a way to do this?
    Can this be automated?

    Thanks,

    Hello Vine,

    Usually for a specific VM if you disable the vmtools auto upgrade, the tools out of date message should be gone.
    Refer - https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/com.vmware.vsphere.update_manager.doc/GUID-AA1EAFA8-E386-48D6-9F7B-D06399742AAA.html

    Let me know if this worked.
