    Can you upgrade ESXi 5.0 straight to 6.5, or do you need an interim step in between?

      I found I have a HP DL380 Gen 8 server still on ESXi 5.0


      This command worked perfectly to upgrade a 6.0 to 6.5 but can I go straight to 6.5 from as early as 5.0?  Obviously I added the --dry-run to see the output before running it.


      esxcli software profile update -d /vmfs/volumes/1fe43b18-44f1ee63/iso/VMware-ESXi-6.5.0-Update3-14990892

      -HPE-preGen9-650.U3. -p HPE-ESXi-6.5.0-Update3-preGen9-650.U3. --dry-run
