    Hi

    I have a standalone host ESXi (6.5.0 Update 3 (Build 15256549) when I`ve tried to upgrade I got an error:
    [root@localhost:~] esxcli software profile update --depot=/vmfs/volumes/5ee83cf6-f5a31fce-3856-48df37d419d0/VMware-ESXi-7.0.3-20036589-HPE-703.0.0.10.9.1.5-Jul2022-depot.zip -p HPE-Custom-AddOn_703.0.0.10.9.1-5
    [InstallationError]
    The pending transaction requires 247 MB free space, however the maximum supported size is 239 MB.

    I tried to remove some vibs and upgrade using the ISO. When I tried upgrading with ISO I got this message: VMFS datastore cannot be preserved
