The upgrade stalls on Scanning system…. Gathering additional system information. This may take a few moments.
On the background screen: ValueError: Cannot merge VIBs Mellanox_bootbank_net-mst_22.214.171.124-1OEM.5126.96.36.1992560, Mellanox_bootbank_net-mst_188.8.131.52-1OEM.5184.108.40.2062560 with unequal payloads attributes ([net-mst: 8.250 KB], [net-mst: 8.242 KB])
1. Login to ESXi via SSH
2. Check All VIBs:
~# esxcli software vib list
Check All VIBs with net in name
~# esxcli software vib list | grep net
List Network Uplinks Installed on Server (Check that Mellanox is not used by any of uplinks)
~# esxcli network nic list
Remove net-mst VIB/offline bundle driver
~# esxcli software vib remove -n net-mst
You should receive the following confirmation after you run the above command:
Message: The update completed successfully, but the system needs to be rebooted for the changes to be effective.
VIBs Removed: Mellanox_bootbank_net-mst_220.127.116.11-1OEM.518.104.22.1682560
3. Restart host
4. Boot to HP Custom ESXi Installation Image/CD
The Installation should not give error now
Thanks for this tip!! Worked a treat after running in to the same issue upgrading to Update 2!!
Thanks. I had this problem this weekend and didn’t know how to verify that I wasn’t using the VIB that failed.
