error upgrading esxi 5.5 to 6.0 with command li… |VMware Communities


Hello,

I have a remote ESXi server which needs to be migrated from version 5.5 to version 6.0 using command line, and a version 6.0 depot (ESXi-6.0.0-2494585-standard-depot.zip)

My server is version VMware ESXi 5.5.0 build-2068190

 

Once i apply the command :

esxcli software vib update -d /vmfs/…../ESXi-6.0.0-2494585-standard-depot.zip

 

But i receive this message error:

[InstallationError]

There was an error checking file system on altbootbank, please see log for detail.

Please refer to the log file for more details.

 

When i check the /var/log/esxupdate.log i read these lines, which do not help too much:

2019-12-23T13:05:37Z esxupdate: root: INFO: Command = profile.setacceptance

And in the /var/log/esxcli.log it says:

Please refer to the log file for more details.

 

Can anyone help me in this problem please?

Thank you in advance.
