If your CentOS host is unsupported, manually upgrade your CentOS host to the supported version.


Verify that the CentOS host is supported. See Supported Hypervisor Upgrade Path.

CentOS requires the following dependencies for the LCP package and host components to work properly.
PyYAML, c-ares, libev, libunwind, libyaml, python3, python-beaker, python-gevent, python-greenlet, python-mako, python-markupsafe, python-netaddr, python-paste, python-tempita


  1. Follow the instructions available on the CentOS web site to upgrade your host. Reboot the CentOS host after the upgrade process has completed.
  2. Download the NSX kernel module for CentOS xx.x.
  3. Install the NSX kernel module.
    tar - xvf <path_to_kernel_module_file> 
    cd <folder_extracted_from_previous_step>
    sudo yum install *.rpm 
    rpm -qa | grep nsx
