Chapter 4: Installing and Configuring vSphere Update Manager

Install VUM and integrate it with the vSphere Client. vSphere Update Manager (VUM) is installed from the VMware vCenter installation media and requires that vCenter Server has already been installed. Like vCenter Server, VUM requires the use of a backend database server. Finally, you must install a plug-in into the vSphere Client in order to access, manage, or configure VUM.

Master It You have VUM installed, and you've configured it from the vSphere Client on your laptop. One of the other administrators on your team is saying that she can't access or configure VUM and that there must be something wrong with the installation. What is the most likely cause of the problem?

Solution The most likely cause is that the VUM plug-in hasn't been installed in the other administrator's vSphere Client. The plug-in must be installed on each instance of the vSphere Client in order to be able to manage VUM from that instance.
