Update Manager

hello everyone,

please can someone help me i'm tearing my hair out here lol, if i try to scan one of my hosts then i get "VMware Update Manager had a failure".

i have looked in the knowledge base and tried the workarounds but still no luck,

if i scan my VMs then it works fine.

plus one thing i did notice was, in update manager, in the baselines its shows a number for update against the VM baseline but it shows 0 updates against the hosts baseline

any help would be grateful

thanks

you have created a baseline and attached it to a cluster or host?
