Updating HP Lefthand VSA to 9.5

Hery Guys,

I have an error updating my VSA 9.0 systems to VSA 9.5.

System environment:

3 ESX Hosts.

- 2 ESX Hosts running a VSA with about 1TB Storage attached

- 1 ESX Host running the FOM (Failover Manager)

Following steps are done:

- Both VSA are updated to 64Bit Hardware and actual VM Machine version

- I have added some disk space to Disk0 (4GB) and Disk1 (1GB) to provide enought local disk space for the firmware update


Initialiazing the update is going well. After some minutes, I receive t a error message:

"Installation failed. There was an error with the configuration, RAID, or memory. (Exit Status 85)"


Due to that error, no updates were performed.


Any idea??


Best regards

Hey Martin,


Have you verified if the disk you gave to the VSA is on a separate virtual controller on lun 1:0.


Is there enough memory in your VSA? You can find the guidlines here:


Kind regards,

The hardwareconfiguration will be fine.

2 GB Ram für about 1TB-1,5TB HDD per VSA

2 vCPUs reserved per VSA

2 NICs reserved per VSA


Best regards
