Within Update Manager I have a number of Baselines configured that show a number of updates available. When clicking the content a handy popup shows with all the relevant Patch Details...

Is there a way to copy this information or output the details to a file from vcenter directly?

  • Which details are you interested in? – ewwhite Sep 15 '14 at 15:45
  • All of it really as I need to plot the details so the company I work for has a record of what was updated and when, severity etc... And it all happens to be there but I just can't copy the details. :( – VM_admin Sep 15 '14 at 15:49

I'd leverage the documentation found in the VMware Patch Portal for the build number you end up on post-update. Each patch has an associated bulletin that describes the changes in detail.

In addition, the new build has a summary of all of the components, bugfixes, CVE's, etc.
