Did you try to delete it via PowerCLI yet?

It's not complaining about the host version, but a host profile ("Esxi06"). Please check whether this host profile is still in use, and consider to delete if it is not needed anymore. Otherwise see https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/52932

In your inventory host profiles are available which is less than version 6.5 and hence it's providing the error to upgrade the host profiles.

Please refer kb https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/67567​ to resolve it.

I have 6 ESXI in cluster which all of them are updated to 6.7 4 months ago and non of them have host profile attached since I cannot export host profiles.

I just noticed that you've updated your initial post while wrote my first reply.

Does the "Delete " option show up in the profiles pop-up menu, i.e. when you right-click it?

In the error message, unsupported host profiles information "Esxi06" is showing. Can you please verify it again, it might have any stale entry.

That's strange. Just to rule out issues with the HTML5 UI, can you please check whether the host profile can be deleted from the flash client?

This is not a new problem or related to VCSA 7.0.

I got this error in the past when upgrading to 6.7. In my case it was cause by the following.... often when deploy small setup i use the Eval mode to make life a little bit easier and use Host Profiles, vMotion and so on. When later apply the original licenses (Essentials) these feature becomes unusable and in my case it was forgotten for years. So i stumble across the problem during the upgrade and for sure i cant delete the old profile because of the wrong license.

Can you tell us more about your license and if regulary have used the Host profiles?

Regards,
Joerg

That's indeed an interesting point that IRIX201110141​ mentions.

What may be worth testing, is to see whether PowerCLI works, or at least throws a helpful error message.

Get-VMHostProfile

Remove-VMHostProfile -Profile "ESXi60"

Maybe unrelated, but since you've posted a screenshot with a DL360 Gen9 server it may be interesting for you.

According to VMware from HPE Certification and Support | Hewlett Packard Enterprise HPE doesn't support ESXi 7.0 on Gen9 servers (yet???)!

One suggestion is before starting upgrade VC process, please export old profiles by using ‘Export Host Profile’ from Host Profile menu.
