vCenter Health Data

We are getting an alarm from VMware vSphere Update Manager Extension. It says "Unable to retrieve health data from http://localhost:9084/vci/downloads/health.xml"

This started happening right after we upgraded our vSphere Web Client (server) to 5.1.

if you put the URL


in your browser does it respond?

Have you upgraded VMware Update Manager also to 5.1?

When I use the URL in the browser I get this:
Health XMLI did not upgrade Update Manager. I only upgraded the Web Client. I was told I can upgrade the Web Client without needing to upgrade any other components (including vCenter).

Restarted vCenter VM, and all seems to be good now.
