I'm trying to upgrade an ESXi4.1 host to 5.0 using the following:
Download VMware ESXi 5.0 Installable Update 1
Version 5.0.0 U1
Build Number 623860
Release Date 2012/03/15
Type Product Binaries
Components This download contains the following components. Hide Details
ESXi 5.0 ISO image (Includes VMware Tools)
File size: 293M
File type: iso
However, during the install I receive a message, "VMFS Cannot Be Preserved" (The selected stroage device contains a VMFS datastore which cannot be preserved. To preserve the data on this VMFS datastore, move the dataq to another datastore. Continuing with the installation will overwrite the VMFS datastore, which will also midify the partitions and delete all existing data.)
Has anyone seen this message? Am I using the wrong ISO or something to do the upgrade?
I have attached the message as a jpg if you want to view it.
