vCenter 5 / vUM 5
Error msg in vCenter console when trying to Stage patches or Patch a server:
"Cannot download software packages from patch source. Check the events and the Update Manager log for download details"
This is a new setup, so this is the first time trying.
I have 3 baselines:
I DO NOT get the error when I stage or patch Just the Critical Host baseline.
I get the error when trying to stage the Non-Critical or HP patches.
And I can remediate the non-critical (maybe this is an order of execution issue .. remediate critical first...?)
But I get the same error if I try to stage or remediate the HP patches.
VUM did successfully connect and download the patches from the websites. I can see the files and metadata on the vUM server.
It seems the error refers to moving the patches from vUM server to the host.
I looked at the logs, but I don't see anything apparent.
I'm having a similiar issue I think... Scanning works fine for all my hosts but staging/remediating fails only on my DMZ hosts with the error message : Cannot download software packages from patch source. Check the events and the update manager log for download details.
Ports are open on the firewall and the only error message I can find in the VUM logs are this : One or more VIBs mapping to Bulletin ESX***-********-** have dependencies not installed on the host: ******** (entity: host-802) and not part of the bulletin, marking as 'UNKNOWN' for DVS scan
