I am wondering, if there is a quick way to restore from a failed ESXi upgrade.
Imaging you have fired up a ONE-Klick-Upgrade of the ESXi image, and (as see with ESXi7.0U1GA) the hypervisor is not boot up again.
At ESXi level i can backup config and restore config after a plane install. But what about CVM?
Setting up the whole node with foundation is a nightmare, if the node is already installed in an customer environment, and can’t be discovered.
The best way would be, that the foundation within a cluster could deploy a CVM to a plain ESXi and rebuild the cluster-node from the information stored in the cluster...
