Hi,

I'm trying to upgrade my ESX 4.1 HP BL460 blades to 5.0.0 or 5.0.1.

My vCenter is 5.0.1.

When I attached the baseline, and scan, it says that it is imcompatible.

I tried with VMWARE's own 5.0.1 and HP's own 5.0.0. Same message.
 Any ideas?

What do you mean manual update? With the CD and reinstall? No, I'd better do it with Update Manager since I have a big number of blades.

I tried with HP and Vmware .ISO image...
