  • 1.  VIB cannot be removed live

    Sorry for the redundant question, but I cannot find where it's clearly articulated how to resolve such an issue.  Does someone have a doc that clearly explains triage steps to fix this?

    I tried maintenance-mode, and there plenty of disk space on this  host.

    [root@localhost:/tmp] esxcli software vib install -d "/tmp/VMW-ESX-6.0.0-lsi_mr3-6.903.85.00_MR-offline_bundle-3818071.zip"

    [InstallationError]

    The transaction is not supported: VIB Avago_bootbank_lsi-mr3_6.903.85.00-1OEM.600.0.0.2768847 cannot be live installed. VIB VMware_bootbank_lsi-mr3_6.605.08.00-7vmw.600.1.17.3029758 cannot be removed live.

    Please refer to the log file for more details.

    [root@localhost:/tmp]

    Thanks in advance.

    run esxcli software vib update instead of install

    esxcli software vib update -d "/tmp/VMW-ESX-6.0.0-lsi_mr3-6.903.85.00_MR-offline_bundle-3818071.zip"
