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?

The error message

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