I get this message every day (sometimes twice).
"Your session with the VMWare Update Manager Server is no longer valid. The VMWare Update Manager client plugin will be unloaded from VI Client."
Then I have to go in and re-enable the plugin.
Anybody else seen this, or know how to prevent it?
All other console features seem to work, except I must say that 2.5 is much slower than 2.0, at least for me.
Same here, we are running VC 2.5 Build 104215. I opened a case with VM support and all they stated was:
"We already opened a Problem Report with Engineering for this issue. It is scheduled to be fixed for the next update for VirtualCenter Server. Please install the new update when it becomes available and advise the resupts."
Anyone else with this issue??
I get the same thing when I access a VPN on the machine running the Update Manager. When I close out the VPN it gives the same error message, very annoying.
Wonder if it has to do with a poorly designed/configured connection timeout. I.e. once it sees it's update connection drop it doesn't try to reconnect it just bails.
I've seen this numerous times. I'm going to upgrade to Update 2 to see if that helps, but if I read the other posts correctly, its probably not fixed in that update yet.
I am running Virtual Center 2.5 Update 2. I have been getting this to happen more than once a day on every PC that I have Update Manager enabled on. It does not happen on the VMware Converter Enterprise plug-in.
Moved to VI: VirtualCenter 2.x forum.
The 9/18 patches do not fix this.

VMware support already knows about this issue, they have agreed it is a bug.
All we can do now - wait for a fix. And we have nothing to discuss here.
I did not know they had so-called patch for this issue....
Hey Anton the more people that are aware and the more people that posts and complain maybe will get VMware to get this issue fixed asap i think it has been long enough of a wait and no solution yet... So people keep discussing and hopefully when a fix is available everyone here will know about it.
Hey VMWare Guys any idea when this will get fixed???? or do "us" customers have to be inconvenienced with this for how much longer??? You have a product that isn't working right come guys do the right thing.... Keep your customers happy....
> Anyone else with this issue??
YES! We had this issue since VC 2.5 U1 however. I didn't consider it a big deal since the "time bomb" ESX incident, so I wasn't worried.. but now there have been a few updates, and it is rather annoying.
I never called because I figured that surely they are aware of it. However since we've had 2 updates to VC since this first started happening, it may be time for a call.
