ESX 6.5 U1 NCM VIB fails to install

I have a newly installed ESXi 6.5 host on our new Synergy 480 Gen10 host. We have 8 hosts, all of them but 1 has been able to installed the VIBs for NCM for ESX.

When I try to use either a local install OR web install, I get the same error.

The transaction is not supported: VIB Nimble_bootbank_nimble-ncs_5.1.0-650006 cannot be live installed.

 

from /scratch/log/esxupdte.log

At a loss now as both Nimble support and VMware support can't resolve this.

Re: ESX 6.5 U1 NCM VIB fails to install

Sorry for the late response.  The host needs to be in maintainence mode.  If not, simply add this command line parameter "--maintenance-mode" in addition to the "--no-sig-check" you have already specified.  Please let us know if this works.
