When upgrading VMware Update Manager (VUM) to 5.5 Update 3e the following error occurs:
VMware Workstation unrecoverable error: (vthread-3) GetProcAddress: Failed to resolve ENGINE_load_aesni: 127
This issue occurs when upgrading to VMware Update Manager to 5.5 Update 3e. I’ve seen this error when upgrading to 5.5U3e at different customer sites.
Here is a quick workaround:
- Uninstall VMware Update Manager and the VMware Update Manager plugins. The database is preserved, all the configuration data is stored in this database.
- Install VMware Update Manager and point to the existing VUM database
- Install the VUM plugin
Within a couple of minutes you’re running VMware Update Manager 5.5 U3e.
