Software or system configuration of host hostname is incompatible. ESX5.5 to ESX6.5.


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.

Cause:

If you look at the Update Manager, Status Details, you might find a conflicting VIBs;

The upgrade contains the following set of conflicting VIBs:
HUAWEI_bootbank_hio_2.0.0.42-1OEM.550.0.0.1331820
HUAWEI_bootbank_hio_2.0.0.42-1OEM.550.0.0.1331820

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.

Resolution:

Remove the conflicting VIBs, and reboot your host. Scan again for Updates and the Compliance Status should changed from Incompatible to Non-Compliance.

Steps to Upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication v6.1.x to v6.5.0.109


Hello,

I don’t want to go through a step by step procedure to upgrade from your current version of Veeam Backup & Replication to the latest version, but I would like to go through the procedure that I have followed in my environment and hope you will be benefit.

1. Stop Veeam Services.
2. Backup SQL Database
3. Upgrade SQL Express 2005 to SQL Express 2008 R2 by initiating this in the CMD SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe /action=upgrade
4. Once it’s done, start veeam Services.
5. Upgrade Enterprise Manager first if you are using it.
6. Upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication.
7. Launch Veeam Console and you will be prompt it with agent upgrade to upgrade the Repository Servers and Proxy Servers.
8. Just make sure everything is back to normal, jobs, logs, configuration run a job test to make sure everything is fine.
