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-126.96.36.199) 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.
