While attempting to create ESXi baseline in VUM I got an error I have not been able to resolve.
Failed to import data. The uploaded upgrade package cannot be used with VMware vSphere Update Manager
Reference KB article
Basically what VMware is saying is the version of VUM and ESXi are not compatible. Here are my versions:
vCenter Server App (VUM integrated)
I could not find a compatibility matrix that included vCSA 6.5 or any evidence the systems current versions are incompatible.
Compatibility Matrix showing VUM 6
Anyone able to help?
After upgrading vCSA to 184.108.40.20600 I have the very same problem with VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.0.0.update02-4192238.x86_64-Dell_Customized-A04.iso. I'm able to import VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.5.0-4564106.x86_64-Dell_Customized-A00.iso but import of all 6.0.0 as well as 5.5.0 fails.
Any idea, please?
Unless I'm missing something new, the Update Manager do not support host upgrade to a version lower than the Update Manager, so, if your Update Manager is version 6, only ISO images of version 6 will be supported, see: Uploading an ESX upgrade bundle to vCenter Update Manager 5.x fails with the error: Cannot upload fi...
I was having the same issue, my ESXi can't go to 6.5 and can go up to 6.0u3. Loading ESXi image for 6.0u3 failed, but figured that required update is actually in the patch repository.
Make sure esxupdate on ESXi host open on firewall.
This operation is not possible by vUM6.5
Note: With Update Manager 6.5 you can upgrade hosts that are running ESXi 5.5 or ESXi 6.0 to ESXi 6.5. Host upgrades to ESXi 5.0, ESXi 5.1, ESXi 5.5, or ESXi 6.0 are not supported.
