HP DL360 G6 "Non-Compliant" with ESXi 5.1

Jump to solution

Hi,

I've two DL360 G6 running with ESXi 5.0U1 and wanted to upgrade them to 5.1.

I've downloaded die HP-ESXi-5.1.0-standard-iso and added it to Update Manager, but when I check for an upgrade I get the error that the servers are "Non-Compliant".

From the VMware Compatibility Guide the DL360 G6 should be supported for ESXi 5.1.

Is there any way to find out why it's Non-Compliant?

If I'm not mistaken, UM usually produce "Non-Compliant" error/alert if ONLY your hosts(ESXi 5.0) are not match with your intended baseline (ESXi 5.1) when you attach it to the hosts. However, once you patch the host with this baseline, it should change it to compliant.

"Incompatible" should be the one to worry about.

Non-Compliant can also meant that a 3rd party application has a hook into the kernel, like Veem backups or some other software like that. Generally you can disregard the error, and during the upgrade, check the box to remove 3rd party software.

After the update, you'll need to reconfigure whatever software had the hook (backups or whatever) so everything again works - you may need some software updates.

I believe there's a way to see exactly what software mayb be incompatible in the Event logs, but I'm not positive...
