Upg 5.5 to 6.5

howdy,

After running the Dell iso upgrade against the server, there are some vib's conflicts.

I removed them with these commands:

esxcli software vib remove -n=net-bna

esxcli software vib remove -n=net-tg3

esxcli software vib remove -n=scsi-bfa

esxcli software vib remove -n=scsi-qla2xxx

esxcli software vib remove -n=net-qlge

However after rebooting the upgrade failed on:

QLogic_bootbank_net-qlcnic_5.1.157-1OEM.500.0.0.4722560

QLogic_bootbank_net-qlcnic_5.1.157-1OEM.500.0.0.4722560

Is

esxcli software vib remove -n=net-qlc

the correct removal command?

Cheers.

ps- Thanks Andre

The CD-ROM upgrade option updates the host, but may leave old drivers in place.

What I usually do is to upgrade the hosts from the command line using the appropriate command, which basically does a clean installation of the binaries, but preserves the configuration. I've posted the steps at Re: Upgrade of 5.5 to 6.5U1 hosts

Yes the commands are,

  • List the VIBs installed on the host

esxcli software vib list

  • Identify the name of the VIB and use below command to remove it

esxcli software vib remove --vibname=name

Please double check whether these are not required by any components, before deleting.
