The host upgrade from ESXi 5.5 to ESXi 6.0 failed with the following error: „Cannot execute upgrade script on host“.
Hi. One of my clients use proxmox virtualization in Production. So I need to move one service machine created for them from vmware to proxmox. As for me the most simple way is to use VMWare Converter. Lets try.
My vm configuration on esxi.
If you will receive the following error during vSphere 6.0a –> 6.0b updating:
Today I tried to upgrade my standalone (not in Cluster) host (HP DL 180 G6) with esxi 6.0 and Update Manager. But when the process starts I had received this error:
The upgrade contains the following set of cpnflicting VIBs:
Few weeks ago VMWare released VSAN Health Check Plugin. This plugin allows monitoring and troubleshooting your VSAN 6.0 Clusters. There are two versions of this plugin: first for Windows based vCenter Server and the second – for Linux VCSA (rpm file). VSAN Health Check plugin allows you to collect information about Cluster and its health, which would otherwise needed to be gathered via RVC or CLI. There is also a vib file which you need to deploy on your esxi hosts in VSAN Cluster. The deployment of the VIB file can be done through vSphere web client (other methods are through RVC, VUM or manually via CLI with “esxcli software vib” commands).
Today I want to install esxi 6.0 to my HP Microserver Gen8, which has only 4Gb of RAM. During the installation you will receive error as on screen below:
The esxi (standalone server) is free, but it must be licensed. If not, it installs as 60 days trial, which expires after 2 month.
How-to receive and apply VMware Free License to VMware ESXi 6.0?
Last time I described how to build test environment for vSAN 5.5 on one physical server. Today I want try to update VMWare vSAN 5.5 to vSAN 6.0. After that I will upgrade vSAN in Production.
So we have our test environment with nested esxi virtual hosts. We have updated hosts and vCenter to 6.0. And see notification on our vSAN cluster.
vSphere Update Manager is a software for upgrading, migrating, updating, and patching clustered hosts, virtual machines, and guest operating systems. Update Manager orchestrates host and virtual machine upgrades. If your site uses vCenter Server, VMware recommends that you use Update Manager.
In the nearest future I am planing to update vSAN to 6.0 version on Production. The procedure is not trivial, so I want to try update on test lab. We need to build an entire embedded vsan environment.
