On a vmware ESXi 6.7.0 Update 1 (Build 10302608):
# esxcli software vib remove –vibname vibpacketname
Error in running [‘/etc/init.d/vibpacketname‘, ‘stop’, ‘remove’]:
Return code: 1
Output: Service not running
This vib-package isn’t working anymore, that’s why we want to remove it, but since esxcli tries to stop a non-running process it fails.
(adding -f parameter makes no difference)
Is there any way to remove the package manually?
