This weekend I updated an esxi 6.0 (dell customized) to 6.7 (also dell customized). Unfortunately I failed to realize that the latest nvidia driver for the grid K2 in the server only supported up to 6.5. I did a rollback to 6.0 in the recovery mode on esxi and attempted to upgrade to 6.5. I got an error during installation about the VMware_locker_tools-light_10.2.0.7253323-8169922 requires esx-version >= 6.6.0. I also get the same error even trying to update the nvidia driver on my 6.0 install
[root@vmhost-view01:~] esxcli software vib update -v /tmp/NVIDIA-vGPU-kepler-VMw
VIB VMware_locker_tools-light_10.2.0.7253323-8169922 requires esx-version >= 6.6.0, but the requirement cannot be satisfied within the ImageProfile.
Please refer to the log file for more details.
I'm sure this has to do with something leftover from when i upgraded to 6.7 but not familiar enough to begin to try fix. Do I need to also somehow roll back that vmware locker tools or at this point would rebuilding be easier?
I can't tell you for sure whether the rollback will cause issues in the future, but what may be worth a try, is to do the v6.5 offline bundle installation from the command line using the esxcli software profile install ... command.
Note: "--dry-run" will show you what's going to happen, but not do anything. If everything looks as expected run the command without "--dry-run"
If that works, you should be able to install the Nvidia driver once the host has rebooted.
