I was told that upgrading a newer version is s simple process, however, I just began a n upgrade and I'm confused on whether I should proceed. I'm at the Step: ESXi and VMFS Found & it provides 3 Options, and Option 1 has an (X) as if its the default/correct choice.
(X) Force Migrate ESXI, preserve VMFS datastore
( ) Install ESXi, preserve VMFS datastore
( ) Install ESXi, overwrite VMFS datastore
I'm certain that it is not option 3 as my objective is to preserve the existing datastore with the guest operating systems, however,
when I choose option 1, it presents the following an error message:
"Custom VIB's Warning
Your system encountered following warnings during prechecks.
<3RD_PARTY_SOFTWARE_WARNING: Host contains third-party
VIB(s) that have not substitute on the ISO.
The current host system is an HP ML350g6 & is functioning fine on ESXi VMware v4.1 and it was suggested that we upgrade
to a newer version for this host system.
Basically, I just want to know if I should proceed or backout (if possible) and leave the system as is?
