  • 1.  Update Manager Service not starting when vCenter server restarts

    Posted Oct 30, 2009 04:22 PM

    Hi there,

    Every time we restart our vCenter server the "update manager" does not start. We can manually start the service just fine, but shouldn't it start automatically?

    Now, we realized this happened once we changed the hostname of the vcenter server.

    I've seen a few KB's on this and have applied the changes they suggested but we still have this issue.

    Any advice?

    During the Update Manager setup you specific the VC servername or ip address you most likely used the server name.

    Follow the instructions from this article on how to repair Update Manager, and use the new server name.

    Thank you for this, but I was not able to repair update manager through the add/remove programs. I could only remove it.

    In the meantime, I just removed and reinstalled vCenter and all is well now.
