We recently upgraded our ESXi to 6.0 process was successful, When we try to upgrade VDS from 5.5 to 6.0, for some hosts it gives error as Host x.x.x.x is not compatible with the VDS version.
These ESXi are on 6.0 like other hosts, I could not find detail error logs, which tells cause for same.
Let me know where I can find error logs.
I have the same problem, I have vcenter 6 and I upgraded one host from esxi 5.1 to 5.5 and when adding the host to a VDS ESXi 5.5 compatible, it says the host is incompatible, without giving any explanation on why this happens.
Any help on this?
I faced this issue as well. Main rteason why you can face it: You have upgrade vDS or just created new one with default setting, and that's the point.
By default vCenter uses latest version of vDS, so in case if you are using vSphre 6, vDS will be version 6 as well.
But you may have not upgraded ESXi image that is used to boot server to latest version (6 in this example)
So main reason to see this error - if you have ESXi version lower than vDS version.
Two possible solutions:
1) upgrade ESXi images to the same version as vDS
2) recreate vDS with -version parameter and specify it to be the same version as your ESXi image
