I am currently running vCenter 6.5 with a mix of 6.0 and 6.5 clusters. I uploaded the latest Dell customized ESXi 6.5 image to update manager, and had no issues updating my first cluster from 6.0 to 6.5. In the past I have had some weird issues with update manager, but since 6.5 was integrated into vCenter it has been a lot more stable. I then proceeded to migrate the next cluster to 6.5 and received this weird error.
I then tried to mount the ISO to the host and install it that way, but now I get a much more detailed error.
- SSH into the host and run the following command to see list of installed VIB’s
esxcli software vib list
2. Remove the conflicting VIB.
esxcli software vib remove –vibname=scsi-mpt3sas
Now that the conflicting VIB has been removed you can proceed with installing the updates.
