About Maintenance Hosts

You can designate a virtual machine host as a maintenance host. A maintenance host is a host that you can dedicate for patching stored resources and for staging virtual machines before you move them into your production environment.

This designation is for reference only; however, by designating and using a dedicated host to perform maintenance tasks, you can avoid affecting the performance and the host rating of a production host while performing such tasks.
