    No VUM in vCenter 6.5

    Noiden Novice



      I have a newly installed vCenter 6.5 appliance but I can't find VUM anywhere.


      The "VMware vSphere Update Manager" service is running and in good health.


      I can't find anything with Update Manager in the Client Plug-Ins och vCenter Server Extensions.

          Go to the homepage. There's a link to VUM there.

              Strange. And if you go into System Configuration for the vCenter node, it shows VUM as up and green? Did you deploy this vCSA with its FQDN?

                you should be able to see like below


                Could  you please check below


                1. Log in to the vCenter Server by using the vSphere Web Client.

                3. Under System Configuration, click Services.

                  I have tried that, the output on the status of vmware-updatemgr is this,

                  and this is from the "all services",

                  root@vcenter [ ~ ]# service-control --status


                  applmgmt lwsmd pschealth vmafdd vmcad vmdird vmdnsd vmonapi vmware-cis-license vmware-cm vmware-content-library vmware-eam vmware-netdumper vmware-perfcharts vmware-psc-client vmware-rhttpproxy vmware-sca vmware-sps vmware-statsmonitor vmware-sts-idmd vmware-stsd vmware-updatemgr vmware-vapi-endpoint vmware-vmon vmware-vpostgres vmware-vpxd vmware-vpxd-svcs vmware-vsan-health vmware-vsm vsphere-client vsphere-ui


                  vmcam vmware-imagebuilder vmware-mbcs vmware-rbd-watchdog vmware-vcha

                  Still no "Update Manager" anywhere.


                  Here is the info on the services from inside vCenter Flash UI,


                  Don't know if that has anything to do with this, but shouldn't the node be the FQDN?

                    I reinstalled vCenter with a new FQDN and IP and now Update Manager works.
