      Hey Guys,

      I try upgrade my free version of esxi from 6.0 build-15517548 to 6.5 or 6.7 but everytime my server boot i get purple screen.

      I upgrade like this to 6.5:

      esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient

      esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.5.0-20200704001-standard \

      -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml

      esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e false -r httpClient

       

      or to 6.7:

      esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient

      esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.7.0-20200804001-standard \

      -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml

      esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e false -r httpClient

       

      Best Regards
