    Upgrading ESXi from 6.7U3 to 7 (Dell customized image)

    pondy001 Lurker

      I am in the middle of upgrading the host cluster in our lab environment from ESXi version 6.7U3 to 7. I have already updated the vCenter Server appliance to version 7. I have created a baseline using the ESXi 7 ISO and have tried to update the cluster using the Life Cycle Manager but the scan says that baseline is compatible. I have vSAN configured and DRS is set to fully automatic mode.

       

      Hardware wise, the lab consists of a Dell VRTX chassis with 4 M640 blade servers. Each blade has 2 x Intel Xeon Silver 4114 CPUs & 384 GB of RAM. I believe the hardware should be compatible, the compatibility matrix suggests so.

       

      Anyone have an idea as to why the baseline would be incompatible?
