You can gather information about recent events on the Update Manager server for diagnostic purposes. When Update Manager and vCenter Server are installed on the same machine, you can also gather the vCenter Server log bundle together with the Update Manager log bundle.


  1. Log in to the machine on which Update Manager is installed.
    To obtain the complete set of the logs, you should log in with the user name and password used for installing Update Manager.
  2. Select Start > All Programs > VMware > Generate Update Manager log bundle.


Log files are generated as a ZIP package, which is stored on the current user’s desktop.
