If doing the ESXi hypervisor upgrade through Prism and the hosts are licensed only with standard, does the host sit waiting to go into maintenance mode until someone manually moves the power on VM's off?

Straight up doesn't work. You need to be licensed for DRS.

If you have standard, you'll need to do the patches manually, or switch to AHV.

All good. Makes sense, DRS should be in the standard but that probably would cut enterprise plus licensing in half or more.....
