I am trying to install a community NIC driver (for an Intel 82579LM) under ESXi 5.1 update 2 and I keep getting this error message:
The transaction is not supported: VIB daoyama_bootbank_net-e1000e_2.1.4 cannot be live installed. VIB VMware_bootbank_net-e1000e_1.1.2-3vmw.510.2.23.1483097 cannot be removed live.
I am in maintenance mode
I have restarted the host before attempting the install
I have stopped all service except for ssh and esxcli
I have tried install --maintenance-mode and install --no-live-install
I have tried to repackage the driver (using ESXi5 Community Packaging Tools and have explicitly tried either "Live Install Allowed" On or Off
None of this is working...
Any help / pointer most welcome !
