Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Virtual Machine Manager
The operation of bringing a managed computer into compliance is known as update remediation. In System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), you can choose to remediate all update baselines that are assigned to a computer, all noncompliant updates in a single update baseline, or a single update.
The procedures in this section describe how to perform update remediation on virtual machine hosts by using VMM. The first procedure remediates all updates on a single stand-alone host. The second procedure describes how to orchestrate rolling updates of the cluster nodes.
Account requirements To perform update remediation, you must be an administrator or a delegated administrator in VMM. Delegated administrators can only remediate updates for computers that are within the scope of their user role.
Before you can perform these procedures, you must have set up update management in VMM. For more information, see Managing Fabric Updates in VMM.
