So if you have a bunch of queued items in your VMware vSphere Client Recent Tasks that say “Check new notifications” initiated by “VMware vCenter Update Manager Check Notification“, there is an easy fix. Here’s what it looks like:

To fix, all you have to do is restart the VMware vCenter Update Manager Service on your VCS server. See below:

You can also do a “net stop vmware-ufad-vci” then a “net start vmware-ufad-vci” as well. Let me know if this works out for you! 🙂

  1. Moi aussi. Although when I attempted to restart the service, I got an error 1067. I rebooted the vCenter server and all was well. (this coincided with a need for Windows Activation and an admin password change – been a while since I was using the lab!)

  2. Thanks — it worked for me, too! I appreciate the tip! I didn’t check it for a little while (maybe a half hour or so), but they were all gone by then!

  3. Likely you can combine the two commands like so: “net stop vmware-ufad-vci && net start vmware-ufad-vci” to do it in one shot.

  4. So many sites listed this as a fix. Just wanted to state that I was able to track this down to our vCenter server IP address changing. Long story short I tracked it down due to some other errors I was seeing. I added the old address so that the vCenter Server had both the new and former addresses (both on the same subnet) and this task finally completed.

    I suspect it had something to do with an SSL cert but I’m still trying to untangle that. vCenter works without that nagging error and we’ll go back and find out what went wrong when we changed the IP.

  5. Worked like a charm. We created a new vCenter and imported the old data but had changed the IP address so this might be a valid reason.

  6. There is an easier fix for this issue than restarting the VUM service

    install the update manager plugin on the Virtual center machine and on the user’s machine that is getting the issue one of the notifications will finished the others will error

  7. Thanks very much for the restart vcenter update manager services fix. I have had the “check new notifications queued” for 2 weeks. This morning I came to the office and decided to look seriously for a fix. I restarted the services and voila..all the queued messages disappear. Thanks very much, works like magic.

  8. How is it suggested we do this if running the vCentre applicance? Anything short of a reboot?
