      I have been trying to get vsphere replication to upgrade itself via www and also via the vamicli command line. Both return the same error:

      I verified there is no proxy configured and I was able to do a nslookup from within the appliance. I was also able to ping vapp-updates.vmware.com from the appliance. I tried disabling iptables but still no luck. I know the product is free, but it still feels very buggy. Even once I got replication working, I still get random errors which require rebooting the appliance. Currently I have v8.1.0.6060 build 8744176 installed but this issues described above have been similar on all builds I have tried so far.

      I can't imagine I am the only one with these issues. Any ideas?
