I was somewhat troubled after updating the VMware vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) from 7.0.0 to 7.0.1. I do have an appliance backup configured using SMB which ran fine for VCSA 7.0.0, but after installing the critical patch 7.0.1 the backup didn't work anymore. What suprised me that after installing the critical patch teh VCSA didn't request a reboot..

Don't trust the update, reboot! It solved the SMB backup in blink of an eye instead of contacting VMware support, calls, etc.

So, just my 2 cents, reboot after each patch or update, just to be on the safe side!
