I would like to update esxi host from 7.0 to 7.0U3 but I have only one vsphere host and on this host is also running Vcenter, is any way to upgrade this Esxi host from this Vcenter because remedtation pre-check give me this error?:
"VMware vCenter Server is installed on the virtual machine and DRS is disabled on the cluster."
yes you can do that.
1. Download the update from VMware https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/patch
2. Upload the Patch to your datastore
3. shutdown all vm´s running on that host
4. ssh to your host
5. Update your host with esxcli software vib install -d [PATH_TO_THE_VIB_ZIP]
6. Reboot your host
I successfully updated esxi host and rebooted, the power on Vcenter server that is placed on that esxi, then exit from maintenance mode by typing on esxi console:
[root@serv:~] vim-cmd /hostsvc/hostsummary | grep inMaintenanceMode
inMaintenanceMode = false,
But on eSXI I have status:
7.0 Update 3
Normal (not connected to any vCenter Server)
How to connect to Vcenter again?
could it be that your vCenter Server has an older Version?
Normaly you update your vCenter Server first, and afterwards your esxi hosts.
If so, please update your vCenter Server. Otherwise, what Version are you running on.
Normal (not connected to any vCenter Server) --> Did you already power on the vCenter Server VM?
How to connect to Vcenter again? --> If the host is not automatically connected to vCenter, right click it in the vCenter Server GUI, and select "Connect"
