Settings Hosts Depot Overrides APIs

The DepotOverrides service provides operations to manage software depots overriden for a given host. In general ESX servers reach out to vCenter (VUM) to fetch the metadata and payloads required for lifecycle operations. But in ROBO environments ESX hosts can’t (or because of bandwidth requirements shouldn’t) reach out to vCenter to fetch payloads and metadata. This service allows setting host level overrides for depots. If any depots are provided for a host, then vCenter level depots are not used for that host’s remediation. These are not synced periodically at vCenter and are only used by ESXs for lifecycle operations.
