I've installed VUM 5 on a seperate server to VCenter. I've used the default SQL database install and have installed the VUM plugin on the VCenter server. When I try to download updates,patches etc I get an error telling me that VUM is unable to connect to https://vmware.com/patchmanagementsystem/patchmanagement. However, when I hit the 'test' button all seems to be okay.
If I try reaching this URL https://vmware.com/patchmanagementsystem/patchmanagement using IE9 or Firefox I get a 'Page not found'. This occurs on both a laptop at home or on the server at work...
There is a proxy at work but I can enter the ip, username and password and the 'test' option works.
Can someone please shine some light on this for me?
