    Connecting to Update Manager from distant machine

    EcoBassam Enthusiast

      Hello,

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      I have my vCenter cerver + update manager server installed in the same machine, let's call it vcenter01.example.com.

       

       

       

       

      I am trying to connect to the VC using Vsphere Client from a distant machine let's call is machine01.distant.com.

       

       

       

       

      When i connect i get this error message :

       

       

       

       

      vSphere Client

       

       

       

       

      There was an error connecting to VMware vCenter Update Manager - .

       

       

       

       

      The request failed because the server name'vcenter01' could not be resolved. (The remote name could not be resolved: 'vcenter01')

       

       

       

       

      And the Update manager tab is not displayed.

       

       

       

       

      When I try to connect from the vcenter01 machine itself, it works.

       

       

       

       

      When I try to connect from mchine02.example.com (same suffixe as the VC), it works.

       

       

       

       

      So I think it is a DNS resolution problem, so can I change the variable "vcenter01" to "vcenter.example.com" somewhere in the config options ?

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Thanks for your help.
