Recently we had a controller failure on our HP DL360 G5 server and OS won't boot as disks are unavailable. We manage to install vCenter Server 5.U 3 quickly on a spare server lying nearby and point to existing DB. The new server retained the old server IP as we dont want to make IP changes which would affect our client connectivity.
I have reinstalled Update Manager from scratch and get option to provide vCenter IP and login details and all looks normal, except when i install plugin and hit configuration tab, the IP address shown is Old IP the spare server had and doesn't show the IP that i expect. To put it in details
VC1 - 192.168.170.101
VC1-DR - 192.168.170.102
VC1 crashed and we got VC1-DR up quickly, changed ip address to 192.168.170.101 and installed vCenter Server. Update Manager for some reason shows me 192.168.170.102 where as i expect .101.
I have followed instructions on KB 101322 and extension.xml has right ip (.101) and cannot figure out where this IP is stored. Appreciate any advise that might help me to fix this issue.
Have you tried running VMwareUpdateManagerUtility? If not, it's placed in Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\Update Manager. Try "Re-register to vCenter Server" and see if that works.
