ESXi notes

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, my first post to the Reset Forums but I've been lurking for quite a while.


I have a Gen8 microserver running HPE-ESXi-6.5.0-Update2-iso-preGen9-650.U2.
This is booting from a 120GB SSD in the ODD tray and it works fine.

The only downside to 6.5 is that FreeBSD VMs take a long time to boot and the Web Client shows that message:
"The configured guest OS (FreeBSD (64-bit)) for this virtual machine does not match the guest that is currently running. . .".


This morning I tried to upgrade using the VMware-ESXi-6.7.0-Update2-13006603-HPE-Gen9plus-670.U2. ISO burned on a USB.


When the upgrade process scans the disks it does not recognize any existing installation so I'm not getting an "upgrade" option.

I did notice that, after the scan, the disks themselves are listed in a different order - SSD last, not first as it was for the 6.5U2 upgrade.


Anyone know what's going on here?  Any additional info that might help?

Thanks in advance.
