ESXi Update problem 7.0 to 7.0U1 missing bootbank

 After some unsuccesful tries to update 7.0 to U1 i created a case with VMware to show them that i get a totally useless ESXi installation after the update to U1 17119627.

The Case took a while but finally there is a workaround out for my specific case, actually i´m not thinking to be that specific as I’m just running ProLiant Gen10 and vSAN in a 10 Node cluster.

The problem seems beeing with the software FCoE that i´m not using so it´s easy to just remove it from the configstore prior the update:

  1. configstorecli config current delete -c esx -g storage_fcoe -k fcoe_activation_nic_policies –all
  2. reboot (important) 
  3. update to 7.0U1 as usual

There should be a patch out soon that hopefully will address this but meanwhile you can try it this way.



7.0.1c is fixing this issue so you can easily update now.
