Cisco custom ISO - Upgrade to ESXi 6.5 - Conflicting VIBS Error

FYI - I was running into an error upgrading to ESXi 6.5 using the Cisco custom ISO's stating "CONFLICTING_VIBS ERROR". Seems to happen on every Cisco custom 6.5 ISO available through VMware:Screen Shot 2019-01-11 at 8.07.26 PM.png

 To get past this, I had to do the following to the existing ESXi install:

From ESXi Console:
alt + F1 (to enter shell)
esxcli software vib remove --vibname scsi-qla2xxx
esxcli software vib remove --vibname scsi-lpfc820

 

Just putting this out here in case someone else is running into this - haven't seen any other posts referencing it, but TAC says that several customers are running into this same problem.

Re: Cisco custom ISO - Upgrade to ESXi 6.5 - Conflicting VIBS Error

super info, thank you, 1st hit on google search and this was my issue. saved me a bunch of trouble doing a fresh install and having to reconfig the vm settings. weird part is, I only hit this one one of 6 ucs-b series blades all running same version of 5.5 in the same chassis. not sure why 1 was different than the rest...

Re: Cisco custom ISO - Upgrade to ESXi 6.5 - Conflicting VIBS Error

I had the exact same issue going from ESXI 5.5 U2 to ESXI 6.5U2, on a UCS C240 M3. Also using the cisco custom image. I had to remove the following vibs using the ESXi console:


esxcli software vib remove --vibname net-ixgbe
esxcli software vib remove --vibname scsi-qla2xxx

esxcli software vib remove --vibname scsi-lpfc820

 

Rather annoyling the last vib scsi-lpfc820 didnt show as a conflict until a second upgrade was attempted.
