Pinned topic Cannot upgrade IBM custom esxi 5.0 to IBM custom esxi 5.1

‏2013-02-05T13:33:25Z |
We are trying to upgrade our HS 22 (7870) Blades to esxi 5.1 using the IBM customization. Our current 5.0 hosts were installed using IBM 5.0 Customization. The upgrade errors out with several VIB errors. (I don’t recall the exact text.)Most of the errors seemed like they revolved around the LSI VIB's. Has anyone else run into this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I haven't updated any of my x3550 M2 or HS21 systems but I had a similar issue with some Dell servers. I ended up having to manually uninstall the custom VIBs via CLI and then I was able to apply the customized image via update manager.

    Thank you for the reply. We have removed all the VIB's and are still running into a problem. VMware support is telling us that we need to verify that the IBM build has a specific patch applied.(vSphere 5.1 with download patch ESXi510-201210001) Does anyone know if this patch is included in the IBM build or how I can find out?

    Does IBM monitor this forum at all?

    I had the same problem.  Here is what I did to fix:

    The error message was pretty long but in a nut shell the LSIProvider_500.04.V0.24-261033 vib in the 5.0 customized version cannot be upgraded / replaced by the lsiprovider_500.04.V0.30-4000000 version on the 5.1 customized key.

    if you ssh into your esxi host and run 'esxcli software vib list' you should have this line:

    LSIProvider           500.04.V0.24-261033                 LSI                 VMwareAccepted    2012-09-07  

    Remove it with:

    esxcli software vib remove -n LSIProvider

    After it has been removed you can reboot esxi and then you can push out the customized 5.1 upgrade with update manager.
