          Your NIC probably is using a vmklinux driver which are no longer supported in 7.0. If there is no native driver available, you cannot upgrade. Most likely you have incompatible hardware.

              You can't disable the driver in use by the pNIC being used by the management vmkernel. That's what the message is saying, in effect, because otherwise when it reboots you'd have no connectivity.

               

              What is this hardware? It probably won't support 7.0. Not all hardware does, and not all hardware has native drivers yet. Nothing you can do in those cases except get compatible hardware.

                This esx6.7U3 is inside vmware workstation 5.5.2

                And the host is intel hardeare. So, this esx is kind of vm box inside workstation. Any suggesyion ?

                  Not really. It's been out for a whole for days. May need to wait for an updated version of Workstation.

                    From the esxcli system module list output, there is e1000 module loaded. Can you change the network adapter in the nested esxi from e1000 to vmxnet3 and try the upgrade?

                      how do I change that ? it is vmnic0 - which is currently e1000.

                            The problem seems to be with whatever type of device is being used as vmhba1:

                             

                            2020-04-06T22:42:01Z esxupdate: 2104745: upgrade_precheck: DEBUG: vmhba1: rejected for native driver support non-pciiid device with sbdfAddress '0000:00:10.0' and description '(0000:00:10.0) LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI'

                             

                            The lines immediately above and below this show that vmhba0/vmhba2/vmhba3 are fine.

                             

                            Check the disk type for each virtual disk of your VM.

                                The initial error was coming for network device that is gone now ( i assume after changing nic driver). Now the error is for vmhab1. Can you change the controller for VMHBA1 to pvscsci ( vmware paravirtual) and try the upgrade?

                                  I'm intrigued as to why you must get the host upgraded "no matter what" when it's nested inside VMware Workstation - what is so critical about the host when it's running in a VM anyway?

                                   

                                  You can see from the logs you posted that all your other vmhba devices are being detected (with drivers) correctly, just not vmhba1 - so you need to change that driver/disk type in the VM configuration to one of the others that you know will work.

                                   

                                  As for "dropping the ball", there is a change in the driver architecture in ESXi 7 which means vmklinux drivers are no longer supported - this is in the Release Notes: VMware vSphere 7.0 Release Notes

                                   

                                  You can also check device/driver compatibility using the online tool: VMware Compatibility Guide - I/O Device Search
