VMware vCenter Update Manager – “Database temporarily unavailable or has network problems.”

While the following message can be caused by many reasons, I thought I’d list the one I encountered a few months back while deploying VUM.

Error Message:

There was an error connecting to VMware vCenter Update Manager - [serverName.domain.com: 8084].

Database temporarily unavailable or has network problems.

In my case, it was caused by service not running as the proper service account that has access to the database.

Once I changed the account to the proper service account that had access to the VUM database, the error message went away.

I also encountered this on VC 4.1. It would be nice to have VMware include this!!! Thanks!
