Hi Experts,

I have several hosts running in a cluster with version 5.5 - 1331820.
When I import the latest ESXi image of 6.0 ->  VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.0.0.update02-3620759.x86_64-Dell_Customized-A02
then I get the message from the UPDATEMANAGER it is incompatible.

Can you show me why ?
Or do I need a special patch level to upgrade to 6.0 ?

Hi,
the message you have is "incompatible" or "not compliant" ?
Not compliant message is normal after a scan with update manager, it means the upgrade is not done yet on these hosts.

Your source iso is the fine last version for Dell servers.
Did you verify the checksum after download ?

Or maybe you should have some upgrade steps between your version and the last 6.0 u2, because your version is a 5.5 GA.
build 1331820 is the first 5.5 version, without any updates, and it is 3 years old, look for your build number here :

Well, after a check, I don't think you need intermediate step in your upgrade, IMO you could upgrade from your 5.5 GA to v6.0u2 directly.
