Cisco UCS B200 M3 vSphere ESXi 6.0 upgrade to 6.7 custom image

I want to upgrade our Cisco UCS B200 M3 environment from vSphere (ESXi) 6.0 to 6.7 by VMware Update Manager. We used to Cisco custom ISO image (Vmware-ESXi-6.0.0-3620759-Custom-Cisco-6.0.2.1) so I downloaded the latest release and uploaded to Update Manager.

After a few minutes later I received an error message. Fine lets look what is the problem. Under Host / Monitor / Task and Events / Events I recognized error message below in picture.

I tried upgrade process direct on host just becose, I want to try it 🙂

I connected ISO image and I have started the upgrade process on the console screen. Middle of the process what I see?! Yes same error message like in vCenter. Ok, now I belew this is an error 🙂

Fortunatly when you upgarde the host through console the installer will show which VIBs is/are the problem. Restart the host and remove VIBs.

Log in to the host by SSH and type this commands:

“esxcli software vib list” – list all insalled VIB

“esxcli software vib remove –vibname NameOfVIB” – remove selected VIB

Now you can upgrade yor hosts in vCenter Update Manager or console too. Don’t forget after the upgrade done you can licensing your host again.

I hope this short article will help to you.
