If you get the error “The operation is not supported on the selected inventory objects. Check the events for the objects selected for the operation” when you try to remediate a host you will also find the following entry in the eventlogs:
- The host is part of VMWare HA.
- The host is part of DRS Cluster
- The host is enabled with Admission Control.
- Disable all of the above services
- Scan the host for Updates.
- Remediate the host again and the Remediate entity should do its job.
When using vSphere Update Manager to upgrade an ESXi 5.x host, the remediation fails with the error:
Software or system configuration of host hostname is incompatible. Check scan results for details.
If you look at the Update Manager, Status Details, you might find a conflicting VIBs;
The upgrade contains the following set of conflicting VIBs:
Remove the conflicting VIBs or use Image Builder to create a custom upgrade ISO image that contains the newer versions of the conflicting VIBs, and try to upgrade again.
Remove the conflicting VIBs, and reboot your host. Scan again for Updates and the Compliance Status should changed from Incompatible to Non-Compliance.
