Dear VMware Experts,
I have a VMware 6.0 infrastructure that consists of 2 ESXi Hosts.
ESXi Host 1: has VMs, vCSA and VUM as a virtual machine
ESXi Host 2: has currently one VM and will be used as a DR/Backup Server
There is no Shared Storage, each ESXi is using its local storage.
Using VUM (that resides on ESXi 1) the ESXi Host 2 was updated successfully.
When I try to update/patch the ESXi 1 and although I select the option to not shutdown the VMs,
the update fails with the following message:
Cannot remediate host because it cannot enter maintenance mode
Please note that I have also tested to enable / disable the option of Entering the Host in maintenance mode.
Is there any option manual or automatic in order to update the ESXi host that has vCenter and VUM
and no shared storage in order to move the VMs to another host?
