I was just updating a vCenter server and some ESXi hosts, but after running the vCenter update I found vCenter full of HA Agent install fails. To stop this fail loop, I turned off VMware HA while figuring out what was wrong.
Error: cannot install the vcenter agent service. cannot upload agent after vCSA upgrade
Just provisioned the HPE ESXi 6.7 Update 3 custom OEM image onto some HP DL560 Gen10 servers.
After I updated the servers using update manager and the HPE vibsdepot I ran into problems. Turns out there is a conflict between the VMware provided driver and the HPE provided driver.
The result is that I cannot install all updates to satisfy compliance.
Checking the esxupdate.log file on the ESXi hosts I get the following error:
ValueError: VIBs ELX_bootbank_elx-esx-libelxima.so_12.0.1108.0-03 and ELX_bootbank_elx-esx-libelxima.so_12.0.1108.0-03 have unequal values of the 'payloads' attribute: '[elx-esx-libelxi: 1602.936 KB]' != '[elx-esx-libelxi: 1493.833 KB]'
I recently installed Powershell Core om Ubuntu 18.04, and after installing the PowerCLI module. I ran into an error.
The error is not an uncommon one, but on Windows the error message makes a lot more sense, so I just wanted to let you know what this error actually means.
The error you might get when you try to connect to your vCenter server using the connect-viserver is the following:
Connect-VIServer : 9/27/18 10:41:37 AM Connect-VIServer The SSL connection could not be established, see inner exception.
At line:1 char:1
+ Connect-VIServer <servername>
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Connect-VIServer], ViError
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : Client20_ConnectivityServiceImpl_Reconnect_SoapException,VMware.VimAutomation.ViCore.Cmdlets.Commands.ConnectVIServer
The only hint here is “The SSL connection could not be established…”
This actually means that you do not have a valid certificate. And if you want to connect to vCenter without a valid certificate, you have to allow this.
You can either change you vCenter certificate to a trusted one, which is the correct solutions or you can ignore invalid certificates, which circumvents all security, but makes it work right now.
