VMware: Update Manager – The operation is not supported on the selected inventory objects.

September 22nd, 2015 No comments

Last week I deployed with Update Manager some patches at an existing vSphere 6.0 environment, during the remediate process I received this error message:

 

image 

 

The operation is not supported on the selected inventory objects. Check the events
for the objects selected for the operation.

 

Solution

During the Remediate process you need to disable Admission Control, also when you have enough resources available in the cluster. You can do this for this specific host you selected for remediate or you can you this temporary at cluster level

VMware: Install vSphere 5 update 1 with PowerCLI

March 22nd, 2012 1 comment

Today I’ve updated my vSphere 5 hosts witch patch 1 released one week ago. Before I started the build number was VMware ESXi 5.0.0 469512:

image

To update the host I used PowerCLI, the code:

Get-VMHost esx02.vmpros.lan | Set-VMHost -State Maintenance
$DataStore = Get-VMHost esx02.vmpros.lan | Get-Datastore ESX02_VMFS01
Copy-DatastoreItem C:\vmpros\patch1\ $DataStore.DatastoreBrowserPath -Recurse
Get-VMHost esx02.vmpros.lan | Install-VMHostPatch -Hostpath "/vmfs/volumes/ESX02_VMFS01/patch1/metadata.zip"

The script will upload the content of the update-from-esxi5.0-5.0_update01.zip located at your local computer (which running  PowerCLI) to the selected datastore. Then the update installation will start.

Update installation process:

WARNING: The update completed successfully, but the system needs to be rebooted for the changes to be effective.

VMware: VMware vShphere Host Update Utility still the fastest way to apply 4.1 Update 1

February 11th, 2011 9 comments

The VMware Host Update Utility can’t “Upgrade Host” your system anymore since vSphere 4.1 with the download .zip files (in my case to upgrade to vSphere 4.1 Update 1 – update-from-esxi4.1-4.1_update01.zip ) …but you can still use the “Scan for Patches” option to apply the latest patches or even full Updates.

Today I updated my ESXi 4.1.0 server to Update 1 with the VMware Host Update Utility

VMware: Multipathing Status: Patrial/No Redundancy

February 11th, 2011 4 comments

Couple of weeks ago I asked on Twitter “Can anyone explain this #VMware storage view? MP status: Partial/No Redundancy.. Same cluster, same Dell Eql. SAN” .. now I was reading the release notes of vSphere 4.1 update 1 and there’s the fix…

a8h.png

Multipathing status for datastores that have fully redundant paths might be reported as having Partial/No Redundancy:

In the Storage View tab of vSphere Client, under certain conditions, volumes that are reported as “Partial/No Redundancy” actually have fully redundant paths. This type of misreporting occurs on iSCSI volumes with hardware initiators. VMware support called this a display bug

Cool, this issue is solved in vSphere 4.1 update 1
