The VMware Identity Manager virtual appliance accesses the VMware update servers through the Internet. If your network configuration provides Internet access using an HTTP proxy, you must adjust the proxy settings for the appliance.

To upgrade from 3.3.6 to 3.3.7, perform the steps that follow.

Enable your proxy to handle Internet traffic only. To ensure that the proxy is set up correctly, set the parameter for internal traffic to no-proxy within the domain.


Verify that you have the proxy server information.


  1. Log in to the VMware Identity Manager console and navigate to the Appliance Settings > VA Configuration page.
  2. Click Manage Configuration, log in with the admin user password, and click Proxy Configuration.
  3. Enable Proxy.
  4. In the Proxy host with port text box, enter the proxy name and port number. For example,
  5. In the Non-Proxied hosts text box, enter the non-proxy hosts that are accessed without going through the proxy server.
    Use a comma to separate a list of host names.
  6. Click Save.


The VMware update servers are now available to the VMware Identity Manager virtual appliance.
