Install and configure Update Manager Download Service

Navigate UMDS installation directory , this tool you can use to change the proxy or Database settings:

To get help:

PS C:Program Files (x86)VMwareInfrastructureUpdate Manager> .vmware-umds -H

-e [ –enable-host-platform ]

Get the current configuration to know your situation:

PS C:Program Files (x86)VMwareInfrastructureUpdate Manager> .vmware-umds.exe -G

So I will:

1. Disable VA download:
.vmware-umds.exe -S –enable-host –disable-va

2. Allow only host updates for ESX-5.*, this could be done by either :

.vmware-umds.exe -S –disable-host

.vmware-umds.exe -S -e embeddedEsx-5.1.0 embeddedEsx-5.5.0

Or

To disable downloading of only embeddedEsx-5.1 and embeddedEsx-5.5.0 host updates while the host is enabled "any previous enabled updates will remain as it is":

.vmware-umds.exe -S –enable-host

.vmware-umds.exe -S -e embeddedEsx-5.1 embeddedEsx-5.5.0

Let me get configuration on more time:

Finally you execute (vmware-umds.exe -D) to Start downloading, I couldn’t catch , so this is a part of the process:
