Preupgrade.pl Script Triggers a Warning When Run on ESX Server 3.0.x System (538417)
When running the preupgrade.pl script to upgrade ESX Server 3.0.x to a later version, I get an error message.
The error may appear similar to:
This version of ESX is not supported by this script.
Is anything wrong?
Because the preupgrade.pl script does not apply to ESX Server 3.0.x , you shouldn't use it on ESX Server 3.0.x systems. You can use it only on ESX Server 2.x systems.
For information about upgrading ESX Server see the Installation and Upgrade Guide at http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vi3_installation_guide.pdf.
