Ive been reading the posts for weeks now and I just got A Dell 2950 II server. I have been tearing hair out trying to figure out how to:
A) install the patch 2 for ESXi i am currently using # esxcli software vib install -d /ESXi-510-2012120001.zip..the directory I am running it from is:
/vmfs/volumes/51225005-2f446dbc-3bbf-001c23c9e598 which is where the ESXi-510-2012120001.zip is located.
When I run it I get the following
/vmfs/volumes/51225005-2f446dbc-3bbf-001c23c9e598 # esxcli software vib install -d /ESXi-510-201212001.zip
Could not download from depot at zip:/ESXi-510-201212001.zip?index.xml, skipping (('zip:/ESXi-510-201212001.zip?index.xml', '', "Error extracting index.xml from /ESXi-510-201212001.zip: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/ESXi-510-201212001.zip'"))
url = zip:/ESXi-510-201212001.zip?index.xml
Please refer to the log file for more details.
any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
On a good note I did find a way to upgrade the bios on theses machines by using Dell Repository Manager ver 1.5 heres the link
Figures it out! You have to use the whole path statement to where your zip upgrade file is located even if your in the directory its located in. Did that make sense?
