Cannot scan Linux VMs with VUM

I'm trying to update my Linux VMs using VUM under vSphere4/vCenter 4, and I'm not having any luck. I have a baseline with all the linux patches in it attached to my linux VMs, but when I go to scan them (powered on), it takes quite a while, then decleares this: "The server database does not contain the software inventory for the VM. Power on the VM and retry scan operation."

Any ideas? VUM works fine for my ESX hosts.

Is your distro supported by VUM?

Have you tried to check download configuration to see if it is configured the linux download patches (and the connectivity status say connect)?
