Im having a bit of trouble with remidiating my test host on vsphere 6.5.
It only seems to be with the ones listed as vmware as the vendor, although they are for a HPE image as shown below.
The HPE branded ones through VUM went through fine.
These are all for the non critical updates, all of the critical updates applied with no problem.
I've updated Vcentre to the latest release through the VAMI and still no joy.
