The required Update Manager Java Components (JRE) are installed or upgraded silently when you install or upgrade Update Manager. By using a vCenter Server Java components patch, you can also upgrade Update Manager Java Components separately from Update Manager installer.
About this task
By using the separate installer, you can upgrade JRE to a version that is released asynchronously from Update Manager releases. If an earlier version of JRE is present on the system, this procedure upgrades it.
When Update Manager runs on the same system as the vCenter Server, if an earlier version of vCenter Server tc Server is present on that system, this procedure also upgrades the vCenter Server tc Server component.
During the patch process, the Update Manager undergoes a downtime as the vCenter Server Java Components patch restarts the Update Manager service.
Download the vCenter Server Java Components patch from VMware downloads page at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads. The name format is VMware-VIMPatch-5.5.0-build_number-YYYYMMDD.iso
Stop any running Update Manager operations, such as scanning, staging, or remediation.
- On the system where Update Manager is installed, mount the ISO of the vCenter Server Java Components patch.
- In Windows Explorer, double-click the file ISO_mount_directory/autorun.exe.
A vCenter Server Java Components Update wizard opens.
- Click Patch All.
If the Java components on the Update Manager system are up to date, a status message that confirms that is displayed.
If the Java components on the Update Manager system are not up to date, they are silently upgraded.
When clicking the Patch All button, if vCenter Server, vCenter Single Sign-On, vCenter Inventory Service or vSphere Web Client are also installed on the system where Update Manager is installed, the Java components for all of these are also silently upgraded.
The Java components are upgraded on the Update Manager system.
