After upgrading my production vCSA from 6.0 to 6.5 U1d, the “Scan for Updates” always runs in an unknown error. Before the upgrade everything works fine and the upgrade of the vCSA was easy to and finished without any error.
After some research and logfile analyzing I found two solutions.
On March 15th VMware has released the Update 2 for vSphere 6.
The VMware Host Client is one cool new feature of the ESXi update. HTML5 based and used for configuring standalone ESXi Host. You can also configure vCenter controlled ESXi Host, but there are often better ways with the central vSphere Web Client.
After I’ve installed the vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA) a few weeks ago the testing process is over and I’ve migrated our production vCenter to the new vCSA 6.0.0b. To be able to update and patch our ESXi hosts I want to install the vSphere Update Manager (vUM). Because there is no option to install the vUM on vCSA directly, you need a Windows host for installation.
