The pending transaction requires 240 MB free space, however the maximum supported size is 239 MB.

Trying to update a vib in Vmware

esxcli software vib update -d /vmfs/volumes/volumename/VMW-ESX-6.0.0-qlnativefc-2.1.46.0-offline_bundle-4074223.zip

Was greeted by an error

The pending transaction requires 240 MB free space, however the maximum supported size is 239 MB.

Tried to uninstall the existing vib so I can do a fresh install

esxcli software vib remove -n qlnativefc

The pending transaction requires 239 MB free space, however the maximum supported size is 239 MB.

You have to remove another vib instead, I choose the below as it wasn’t being used

esxcli software vib remove -n qlogiccna-provider

I was then able to update my VIB

Convert to Virtual Machine from Point in Time Greyed Out

Posted by paris on Dec 31, 2016 in Research

When trying to restore from a backup exec backup to a Virtual machine , the dropdown option “Convert to Virtual Machine from Point in Time” is Greyed Out.

Make sure when you backup the Machine you backup Everything including System State or this option will not be available 

Also make sure one of your backup jobs are not backing up the machine through a Vcenter. This is how backup Exec manages VM level backup jobs for fulling restoring a VM

Roll Back \ Downgrade of ESX 6.5 to ESX 6 Settings

Posted by paris on Dec 23, 2016 in Random

After I found HP’s version of 6.5 wasn’t stable yet : http://pariswells.com/blog/random/hp-vmware-6-5-psod 

We needed to roll back to v6 UP2

You can usually do this if you’ve done an upgrade by Pressing SHIFT and R on the Vmware load screen and roll back to the old version. For some reason the upgrade process had not set a restore point so we will have to do this manually.

I did try the below method of backing up and restore the config files , however this does not work between versions 🙁 

 

vicfg-cfgbackup.pl --server ESXi_host_IP_address -s backup.tgz
 
vicfg-cfgbackup.pl --server=ESXi_host_IP_address --username=root -l backup.tgz
 
vicfg-cfgbackup.pl --server=ESXi_host_IP_address --username=root -r

So we will have to do this manually

Settings to copy down before reinstall.

  1. IP/Subnet/Gateway and DNS of Server
  2. All VSwitch Configurations ( Names , Vlan ID’s ) as well as VKernel IP’s
  3. Make sure if your using NFS You get the paths for these , also check the VSwitch Active Active Settings ( E.g. IP Hash ) 
  4. Scratch Disk Locations ( Click the Configuration tab, then click Advanced Settings under Software. Ensure that Syslog.global.logDir  )
  5. NTP Settings

Reinstall server from scratch and reenter manually

HP Vmware 6.5 – PSOD

Posted by paris on Dec 20, 2016 in Random

Recently installed VMware-ESXi-6.5.0-OS-Release-4564106-HPE-650.9.6.0.28-Nov2016.iso after installing the lastest support HP Firmware : 871790_001_spp-2016.10.0-SPP2016100.2016_1015.191.iso

On a G8 Proliant server , upon Vmotioning servers onto the box 5 minutes after the install, I got a purple screen of death

Contacted Vmware

This PSOD is a known issue with the HP Hardware server in ESXi 6.5.

This is still under investigation and VMware Engineering Team is aware of this issue.

The  Primary suspect is the hp-ilo driver failing to unlock the resources before attempting to lock again which is causing a deadlock situation.

Recommendations:

To contact HP Hardware Support to see if they have any workaround for this issue.

We will get back to you when VMware Engineering Team has a fix/workaround on this issue.

Ask to see the KB

This particular KB is internal only, currently we do not have a public version as VMware and HP are working together on this issue.

Contacted HP

HP saw nothing wrong with the Hardware or iLO wanted to replace motherboard.

I’ve had this before this is their go to if they don’t know what’s wrong

 

This looks to be a common theme : 

https://communities.vmware.com/message/2632536

https://communities.vmware.com/message/2633912

Will ESXi 6.5 work on HP Gen6 servers? from homelab

 

The fix at the moment is to install the Vailla version of 6.5 ( without HP drivers ) which stops Vmware on reporting the hardware or to roll back to 6.0 UP 2 ( which is a reinstall! )
