In a VMWare HA & DRS enabled cluster environments, Using VMware Update Manager for PP/VE upgrade, it fails as ESXi host couldn't be entered into maintenance mode.
This is a VMware bug: vSphere Replication appliances automatically pushing a firewall vib (vr2c-firewall.vib) which is causing an issue with host remediation using VMWare Update Manager (VUM)
To workaround this issue: Disable the automatic installation of the firewall VIB
