After upgrading to 7.0U3 and getting past the Intel NVME issues, I'm now also getting stuck on a Mellanox nmst patch. (host has a Mellanox NIC)
Specifically, this test is failing per the log:
But, trying to manually install this package via cli:
[root@m1a1vsphere04:~] esxcli software vib install --depot /Mellanox-NATIVE-NMST_220.127.116.11-1OEM.700.1.0.15525992_16211416.zip
Expected 1 component, found 2
Please refer to the log file for more details.
So I can't install the component, but the component failing prevents all other patching of the system.
I also tried cloning the patch baseline and removing this package, but same result.
Check to see if you have the Intel i40enu still installed:
esxcli software vib list |grep i40enu
If you do, remove it and try again:
esxcli software vib remove -n i40enu
Yep, tried that one. No change. Also it seems to be specific to the nmst driver in this case as I can produce the error message using the downloaded zip file independent of the LCM process.
