cannot get Update manager Import to work

I am trying to get Update Mnager importy to work.

When I do

cd C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Update Manager\

vmware-updateDownloadCli.exe --update-path C:\ESXUpdates --config-import esx --vc-user

I get the following Error

Silly question if i have an internet facing servers say InterServ1 and a VC say VCServ1

I run a batch file on InterServ1 to download the patches

cd \

cd "Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Update Manager"

vmware-umds -D

I then run anorther batch file to export the patches to VCServ1 ( Virtual center)

cd \

<em[file://vcserv1/esxupdates] /user:Domain\Administrator password*

cd "program files\VMware\Infrastructure\update Manager"

vmware-umds -E --dest Y:\

My Question is do I still need to do an import????
