    Dell PowerEdge R715 - ESXi 6.5 Upgrade Incompatible

    mobinqasim786 Enthusiast

      Hi Guys,

       

      I'm trying to upgrade ESXi 6.0 to ESXi 6.5 on Dell R715 using Dell Customized image, but it showing Incompatible as there's conflicting VIBs which I'd need to remove first.

       

      The upgrade contains the following set of conflicting VIBs:

      Micron_bootbank_scsi-mtip32xx-scsi_2.4.10-1OEM.500.0.0.472560

      Brocade_bootbank_scsi-bfa_3.2.1.0-1OEM.500.0.0.472560

      Brocade_bootbank_net-bna_3.2.0.0-1OEM.500.0.0.472560

      Brocade_bootbank_net-bna_3.2.0.0-1OEM.500.0.0.472560

      VMware_bootbank_net-qlge_2.0.0.54-1vmw.500.0.0.472560

      Brocade_bootbank_scsi-bfa_3.2.1.0-1OEM.500.0.0.472560

      VMware_bootbank_net-qlge_2.0.0.54-1vmw.500.0.0.472560

      Micron_bootbank_scsi-mtip32xx-scsi_2.4.10-1OEM.500.0.0.472560

       

      Is there a way to find out if there VIBs are in use before I remove them? NIC list command shows the below output.
