    Cannot execute upgrade script on host while upgrading esxi 5.5 to esxi 6.5 from update manager

    davidmatthewson Novice

      I have a couple of Dell ESX hosts, running 5.5 and am in the process of updating them to 6.7.

       

      So far I've updated the vCentre host to 6.5 and it works fine. (This is the Linux appliance which replaces our older Windows vCentre) and used the custom Dell image for 6.5U3 to upgrade one of the two hosts with no issues. This now runs fine.

       

      However, attempting to use the u/grade manager to achieve the same ting on the second Dell host results in a 'cannot execute script' error.

       

      I've reboot the host and retried but get the same result.

       

      Checking the vua.log does not show any bootbank/state or altbootbank messages, so I don't think it's any junk in a state.xxxx dir.

       

      Below is the esxupdate log.

      and attached is the vua.log - can anyone please suggest where I might look to work around this?

       

      I did wonder about both 'acceptance level' and free space.. see these lines from vua.log.. but there is no actual log 'failure' entry I can see.

      Many thanks
