Hi!

[StatelessError]

The transaction is not supported: VIB VMware_bootbank_esx-base_6.7.0-3.94.15820472 cannot be live installed. VIB VMware_bootbank_vsan_6.7.0-3.94.15736744 cannot be live installed. VIB VMware_bootbank_esx-update_6.7.0-3.94.15820472 cannot be live installed. VIB VMware_bootbank_esx-base_6.7.0-3.89.15160138 cannot be removed live.

Please refer to the log file for more details.

Yes, the host is in maintenance mode. I rebooted it as well like all people say. And put it out and back in maintenance mode. No change. ESXi ist installed on a 8 GB Fibre Channel volume. The file is fine, checked MD5. Path is good.

Not sure about the size required. Does not seem to be much free space on certain mounts. However, the main one has 3.9 GB free. When I installed ESXi, there was as well some datastore created, which I have deleted. The patch is in a remote datastore (via FC). If I do copy it to a local directory, same issue.

After that my host is "not responding" in vCenter. It is not a network issue (this is based on the failed update?). Not sure why this happend.

I always update the hosts that way. Have done all the patches in the past like that. This time, i am getting this error. The error tells to check the log. Which log - why does it not mention the file to check right away?  Checked esxupdate.log. I have attached the file.

Any ideas how to get this fixed?

Thanks!

Best regards,

Robert
