I am attempting up upgrade my PowerEdge R440 from ESXi 6.7.0 to 7.0 U3 with the downloaded custom iso from VMware and when I check compliance I get the following error:
The upgrade has VIBs that are missing dependencies: QLogic_bootbank_net-qlge_220.127.116.11-1OEM.518.104.22.1681820
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
A couple of options:
-People have been able to install the ISO that was stated to be "incompatible" using CLI
-You can also remove the problematic vibs
Finally you can do a fresh install if you have more than 1 node (redundancy) or if you dont care about data
Did I answer your query or at least help you to follow the right path for the solution? Please click on ‘Accept as Solution’

I had the same error so I ran:esxcli software vib list | grep qlge
Which resulted in:net-qlge 22.214.171.124-1OEM.5126.96.36.1991820 QLogic VMwareCertified 2017-08-29I then went ahead and removed the vib with:esxcli software vib remove -n net-qlge
Resulting in successfully removed VIB: QLogic_bootbank_net-qlge_188.8.131.52-1OEM.5184.108.40.2061820Then re-ran the installation pointing to the DELL profile:esxcli software profile update -d "/vmfs/volumes/MyDirectory/VMware-VMvisor-Installer-7.0.0.update03-19482537.x86_64-DellEMC_Customized-A04.zip" -p DEL-ESXi-703_19482537-A04--no-hardware-warningThe no hadware warning was due to an older Intel processor chip. The update then ran successfully, so I went ahead an applied the latest security patch at the time:esxcli software vib update -d /vmfs/volumes/MyDirectory/VMware-ESXi-7.0U3e-19898904-depot.zipThe server is running well.
Hope this helps.
