Manual Upgrade of NSX Host VIBs - vswitchzer

Installing NSX VIBS on the ESXi host (Preparing ESXi cluster for NSX) is one of the important tasks in preparing your virtual infrastructure for NSX Network virtualization.Preparing ESXi cluster for NSX is a simple task. It will happen within in few clicks in the Networking & Security plugin from vSphere Web Client.Take a look at my article how to prepare ESXi hosts\ cluster for NSX esxcli software vib remove --vibname=nsx-esx-datapath --force --no-live-install. I needed to then manually load all of the 3.0.1 VIBs (using Lifecycle Manager in my case), and reboot each host one at a time. I then reset the Upgrade Coordinator in the NSX-T Manager, and the upgrade was successful. I had to do this on every host in the cluster Extract the vxlan.zip file and Copy the folder into the Shared Datastore or on the local folder of the ESXi host using WinScp. I have copied the folder into my ESXi host in /tmp directory. Let's install the NSX VIBs one by one in the ESXi host. Install the esx-vxlan vib on the ESxi host using the below command: esxcli software vib. After we've removed the NSX-T configuration, we go ahead removing the NSX-T VIBs from the host. Removing requires you to remove in a specific order, as those VIBs have dependencies on each other. The order is following: esxcli software vib remove -n=nsx-adf esxcli software vib remove -n=nsx-context-mux esxcli software vib remove -n=nsx.

Quick Tip: NSX-T 3.0: Removing VIBs manually from ESXi ..

Starting in NSX 6.2, the esx-dvfilter-switch-security modules are included within the esx-vxlan VIB. The only NSX VIBs installed for 6.2 are esx-vsip and esx-vxlan. During an NSX upgrade to 6.2, the old esx-dvfilter-switch-security VIB gets removed from the ESXi hosts. Workaround: None Upon enabling Workload Management on a Supervisor Cluster configured with the NSX-T networking stack, vSphere Lifecycle Manager installs the Spherelet VIB on every ESXi host in the cluster. Supervisor clusters using vLCM can upgrade to the latest version of vSphere with Tanzu and also upgrade the ESXi version of the hosts in the Supervisor Cluster Restarting the NSX Manager, the Hosts or the Web Client services doesn't stop the progress. To reset the NSX Web Client Status and stop it thinking that the VIB deployments are still in progress you need to kill the install job from the ESX Agent Manager (thanks @santinidaniel) and get the opportunity to Resolve/Uninstall the host modules again
