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