VUM - Update Manager issues - W2008 Ent R2 64 bit

Im experiencing issues when I try to remediate Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64 bits VMs.

Im getting the message(s):

The operation on the inventory objects is not supported &  Patch scan or remediation is not supported on *vmname* because of unsupported or unknown OS.

Im sure Im using the correct version in the basline. Im not experienceing issues with other versions. Can anyone help me?

Thanks, Smiley Happy

Hi Kaasie,

according to http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere4/r40/vsp_compatibility_matrix.pdf "Table 14. Operating System Compatibility for vSphere Client, vCenter Server, vCenter Update Manager, vCenter Converter, and vCenter Orchestrator" (Page 16ff)

Windows Server 2008 R2 OS Patching (Scan/Remediate) is NOT SUPPORTED.

There is no updated Compatibility Matrix, and the 4.1 & 4.1U1 release note didn't do anything as well.

I'd advice using WSUS then.
