Remediate entity error: Host cannot download files from VMware vSphere Update Manager patch store. Check the network connectivity and firewall setup, and check esxupdate logs for details.

While trying to remediate an ESXi server I got the following error:

Host cannot download files from VMware vSphere Update Manager patch store. Check the network connectivity and firewall setup, and check esxupdate logs for details.

A quick cat of /var/log/esxupdate.log revealed what was going on

vmware-remediate-error-01

After changing the config to hold the correct IP addresses of the DNS servers all went fine 🙂
