During ESXi upgrade process on one of the cluster I saw that baseline which works fine everywhere else is incompatible!
What would be your first though ? Reboot? Old firmware? Fortunately we can scroll down and have a look what the error is all about.
As we can see there is an issue with VIBs. We need to remove them!
- Suspend or power off VMs
- Put host in Maintenance mode
- SSH to host in question
- Check the VIBs installed by running this command:
esxcli software vib list | grep Q
NOTE: I am doing grep Q to see only VIB by QLogic, as those are an interest of mine, otherwise list would be too long
- Now lets remove VIBs listed listed in vCenter as missing dependencies
esxcli software vib remove --vibname=net-qlge esxcli software vib remove --vibname=scsi-megaraid-perc9
- Reboot host
Now you can apply baseline.
NOTE: baseline will still show as incompatible but once click on REMEDIATE upgrade will go through.
