vCenter automatically deploying VIB to host

This post was originally published on this site



I’ve recently updated my home lab vCenter to v7.0.

In order to do that, I’ve previously removed an incompatible NSX-V installation that I started but never completed (only the manager was installed and connected to VC)

For that I had to unregister some extensions as mentionned in several tutorials and it worked fine.


Now, I want to upgrade all hosts to 7.0 as well and today I had one a failed host because of an old USB stick that didn’t like the upgrade

So I’ve restaged it to 6.7 first on a new USB stick, in order to make an upgrade right after.


When reconnecting the host to vCenter, I’ve noticed it installed the extension VMware_bootbank_esx-nsxv_6.7.0-0.0.14762108 again, which is incompatible with ESXi 7.0.


It is not a problem to remove it manually after, but if I can avoid to keep this forever within my vCenter, that would be great.


Any idea how to do that ? Thanks in advance
