Issue

When attempting to upgrade a NetApp Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) compute node to vSphere ESXi 7.x using vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM), the operation is blocked because the host is declared to be "Incompatible" by vLCM after checking for compliance against the upgrade baseline. The vSphere Client user interface returns a message like:

Status: Incompatible
Details:
The upgrade has VIBs that are missing dependencies:
QLC_bootbank_scsi-qedil_1.0.11.0.0818.1600-1OEM.600.0.0.2494585
areca_bootbank_scsi-arcmsr_1.30.00.03-1OEM.550.0.0.1331820

Note: the specific list of vSphere Installation Bundles (VIBs) will vary in length and content
