Update Manager missing after vCenter Server for Windows 6.7 upgrade

This post was originally published on this site

I recently in-place upgraded our vCenter Server Windows with embedded Platform Services from 6.5 to 6.7. I also installed a new ESXi 6.7 host on an HP DL360 Gen10 server to replace the existing ESXi 6.5 HP ML350 Gen6 server. I originally was going to upgrade to vSphere 7, but found that a Cisco Firewall related VM is not compatible with 7.

 

After the upgrade, the Update Manager tab is missing and I am getting constant queued “com.vmware.vcIntegrity.CheckNotificationTask.label” tasks initiated by “VMware vSphere Update Manager Check Notification”

 

If I look at Client Plug-ins using the HTML5 web interface I see the Update Manager (with a suspicious name of “description”) and the vSan Web Client listed as “Incompatible”. I click “Incompatible”, the popup says “The plug-in supports only vSphere Web Client (Flash).”:

 

If I go to the Plug-ins using the Flash client, it doesn’t show the Update Manager at all:

I’ve been searching for answers to this problem for 2 days and can find plenty of solutions for the Appliance and vCenter with external platform services, but nothing for this configuration.

 

Thanks in advance,

Dave
