what is the proper syntax to check against 7.0 U3? I have tried several iterations and each time the report only shows "7.0" as the Checked Release.

Thank you!

Can you try?

$compchecker.py -s <hostname> -u <username> -r -v 7.0U3

Thanks,

Hi there,
Please excuse me ignorance as I don't come from a command line background.. I have been given the task to upgrade approx 100 Vmware 6.5 server to 7.0u3. these is across various tech stakes including Dell/Cisco and HP. and various models. naturally i need to do a hw compatibility check and i stumbled across this which looks like it will do the job, however i'm uncertain as to what / where i download the last two components from and or it there an alternative solution that i can do hardware checks ?

crypto
pyopenssl

Hi Joe,

You can install those libraries using pip

>python -m pip install crypto
>python -m pip install pyopenssl

Please refer to the following video for installing the python and required libs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ataRS4I4dvs

Recently, I have released a UI compatibility validation tool: https://flings.vmware.com/solution-designer
Please check it out too, however you will still need to use python to collect your hardware data. You can import the collected hardware data in the tool and check the compatibility status from UI

Please feel free to contact me if you have any issues.
Thanks,
Heejeong

Hi Heejeong,

Hope you are doing well , we have installed the tool in our non-prod environment. However , when I check and generated the report for 1 esxi host , we can see it is showing not compatible for storage adapters in the report , But when we check in the VMware compatible guide it is showing correct(Compatible for current version)

May I know why it is showing different , I am not able to paste the screenshot so I have given the details which was generated in report

Details :

Model Name : Cisco VIC FCoE HBA -
Vendor : Cisco System Inc
Installed Release : 6.7.0
Compatible status : May Not be compatible
Hardware Details : PCIID:1137:45:1137:137 Driver:nfnic 4.0.0.65-10em.670.0.08169922
Comments : IO Device 'UCS VIC1380' (PCIID:1137:0045:1137:0137) is certified But current driver (nfnic) is not supported.

However , when we checked in the VCG the above nfnic 4.0.0.65 is supported and compatible for 6.7 U3 and 7.0 latest version.

Please , check and give the justification for the same. Thanks for your help in advance.
