  • 1.  Missing Update Re-Downloading Update

    Posted May 12, 2009 12:45 PM

    Hello, when scanning an ESX host I get a warning of "found missing update ESX350-200806201-UG. Re-downloading these updates may resolve the problem." I found some information regarding re-downloading using "vmware-umds" but this utility does not appear to be available with Update 4. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Using UMDS is too comlicated and unnecessary in your case. It is used when you don't have Internet connection on you VUM machine. You should install UMDS to another internet connected machine, to download patches there and then to copy them manually to your VUM machine. This is the primary usage of the UMDS.

    If you didn't do this yet try to rerun download patch task manually it could help.

    Or maybe those specific patch is obsollete and is not available anymore. What is the ESX compliance when the host is scanned? Can you do host remediation at all...
