Headless:: ESXi 7.0 Upgrade does not stay after reboot:: 6.7 Returns

This post was originally published on this site

Dear Forum,


First, we upgrade our headless (no video card possible) box as described below,


esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-7.0.0-16324942-standard -d /vmfs/volumes/gg0_ssd/images/VMware-ESXi-7.0.0-16324942-depot.zip

Update Result

   Message: The update completed successfully, but the system needs to be rebooted for the changes to be effective.



Everything is Great and we get have 7.0.0 running successfully! 🙂


However, after another reboot, Version 6.7 returns….


What is going on? Can we resolve this with our headless machine,


Thanks so kindly,


Dennis The Menace.
