Upgrade ESXi 5.1 to 6.0 fail

HP Recommended
HP ProLiant DL320e G8

We ran into some problems when tried to upgrade from ESXi version 5.1.0, 799733 to ver 6.0.0, 6921384 using an HPE Custom ISO from VMware (VMware-ESXi-6.0.0-Update3-6921384-HPE-600. This is the error: Cannot execute upgrade script on the host. I looked into the vau.log and this is what I found: Alert:WARNING: This application is not using QuickExit(). The exit code will be set to 0.@ bora/vim/lib/vmacore/main/service.cpp:162. I followed the VMware KB2007167 but not applied to our problem.

you might want to post this on the vmware user forum where specific vmware related questions have a better chance of being answered while you might be using a HP release of vmware the vmware site still has many more vmusers than you will find on this HP peer to peer general purpose forum



one last item, is all of your hardware certified for v6? there were many changes between v 5 an v6 with drive controllers being a common point of upgrade issues, followed by the network card
