vCenter Operations Manager script error fix

ESX Host Can’t Download Patches from Update Manager


Just a little tip in case someone else hits this.  If you have an ESX host that can’t scan for updates or gets the following error in vCenter check the DNS config:

Host cannot download files from VMware vCenter Update Manager patch store.  Check the network connectivity and firewall setup, and check esxupdate logs for details.

This can be caused by having the wrong DNS server listed or none at all.
