Prerequisite: See the System Requirements for Using Quick
Boot During Remediation section in
Manager Installation and Administration Guide
. It is recommended
to carefully assess the configuration before enabling quickboot.
Quick Boot of an ESXi host is a setting that allows
Update Manager to optimize the remediation time of hosts that undergo
patch and upgrade operations. If the Quick Boot feature is enabled,
Update Manager skips the hardware reboot (the BIOS or UEFI firmware
reboot). As a result, the time spent by ESXi host in Maintenance Mode
shortens and the risk of failures during remediation is minimized.
Quick Boot is verified and is supported with a limited
set of hardware platforms, and drivers. Quick Boot is not supported on
ESXi hosts that use TPM or pass-through features. For more information
