Update Manager is missing in the Flash or HTML5 gui. No errors, service is started. Unable to access Virtual Center from Linux Client.

One smash, two flies

After upgrading from 6.5 vcsa to 6.7 without any problem, update manager is missing in the clients, both flash and html5.

No errors on services, and everything looked fine.

But when I from Linux client browse to virtualcenter adress I get:


And I am not able to proceed to the site.


After the upgrade, for some reason the machine certificate got fucked up!
Common Name was set to CA. Don’t know why.

But i HTML5 gui, go to Administration, Certificate Management

Look at __MACHINE_CERT. The Common name was set to CA, and that was not the server name. So we choose action and press renew. Restarted the appliance and after that Update Manager and the cert error was gone.

If you are using third party application like veeam, don’t forget to verify the connection to the Virtual Center.
