VMWare update manager errors

The Problem:

  1. Getting errors: “There are errors during the scan operation” and “There are errors during the remediation operation”
  2. Detailed error for both: “Patch metadata for xxx.xxx.com missing. Please download updates metadata first.”

The Fix:

  1. Find a vmware form on it, that linked to a KB about the problem.

The Second Problem:

  1. The vci-integrity.xml was set the way it needed to be from the vmware KB
  2. The system was only using one NIC

The Second Fix:

  1. Run the update manager scheduled task in vCenter
  2. Once finished with out errors, Restart the Update Manager Service
