I guess you could download the ISO to another VM that internet access then use file sharing to export the ISO to the vCenter VM. How Messy!

D for me. A bit of a tricky question. I have used 'C' a number of times but if the VM that vCenter is installed on has no internet access how do you get the ISO image on it in the first place? Unless its a physical machine then USB will do. For security reasons and deployment restrictions, vSphere, including vSphere Lifecycle Manager, might be installed in a secured network that is disconnected from other local networks and the Internet. vSphere Lifecycle Manager requires access to patch information to function properly. If you are using such an environment, you can install UMDS on a computer that has Internet access to download upgrades, patch binaries, and patch metadata, and then export the downloads to a portable media drive so that they become accessible to the vSphere Lifecycle Manager. If the server on which vCenter Server is installed has no Internet access, but is connected to a server that has Internet access, you can automate the export process and transfer files from UMDS to the vSphere Lifecycle Manager depot by using a Web server on the machine on which UMDS is installed.

C Is correct answer Offline Depots An offline depot, also called an offline bundle, is a ZIP file that you download from the Internet or copy from a media drive and you save on a local or a shared network drive. You then can import the offline bundle to the vSphere Lifecycle Manager depot. You can also download offline bundles from the VMware website or from the websites of third-party vendors. Starting with vSphere 7.0, in addition to distributing an offline.zip file, or offline bundle, and a custom ISO image, OEMs distribute an Add-on.zip file that contains the delta between the OEM custom image and the base image that VMware provides. For more information about OEM add-ons, see ESXi Base Images and Vendor Add-Ons. https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/7.0/com.vmware.vsphere-lifecycle-manager.doc/GUID-133D959D-36E8-4404-A860-C4BBBD3A2B9D.html

- D- VMware vSphere Update Manager Download Service (UMDS) is an optional module of vSphere Lifecycle Manager. UMDS downloads patch metadata, patch binaries, and notifications that might not otherwise be available to vSphere Lifecycle Manager.

They are asking for best answer , C & D are correct but C is manual, but D will be automatic . So on my opinion D is best because it is automatic.

Offline update of VMware VCSA ^ The offline update is useful in situations where VMware VCSA does not have a direct connection to the internet. It can be in secure environments where direct internet access just isn't recommended due to security risks. But we may even need to patch these environments. You need to download an ISO containing the patch. So answer is C
