Remove vShield epsec-mux driver from ESXi 6.7
I was upgrading some ESXi hosts today, from 6.0 and to 6.7 Update, and afterward i found that they had en vShield File Introspection driver installed, so i tried to remove it from command line with:
esxcli software vib remove -n epsec-mux
But it did not work, I got a error back that looks a little like this.
Error in running rm /tardisks/epsec_mu.v00: Return code: 1 Output: rm: can’t remove ‘/tardisks/epsec_mu.v00’: Device or resource busy
The solution is to use the same command but with some extra options:
esxcli software vib remove -f -n epsec-mux --no-live-install
Thanks- I had the same issue and this fixed it.
Thanks Allan – This solution worked for me for upgrading vSphere from 6.7 to 7.0u2. The Agent deployment previously worked, but post upgrade to all components including the the NSX Manager, the Service Deployment threw the error “cannot complete the operation. see the event log for details”
Thanks, this worked for me too !
This worked for me. Thank you!
Thanks for this! I ran into this problem installing NSX-T 3.2 on a host when configuring it as a transport node. That old vShield VIB just didn’t want to go!
