Fix an incompatible host

One of my hosts would not upgrade to 6.5.  When I looked at the host, and on the Update manager tab, I saw the following.


There is a little more info that is not seen on this screenshot. But we see the issue – Tehuti-Networks has a conflict.  So we are going to remove it so we can do the upgrade.

Put your host into Maintenance Mode as we will need to do a power cycle.

So first we confirm the name of the offending VIB.

esxcli software vib list | grep teh*

Here is a screenshot of it


Now we see the actual name we can remove it.

esxcli software vib remove -n=net-tn40x

You can see below what it looks like.


Now we restart the host and we are done.  You should be able to update your host now.  I was.
